12 Songs of Christmas - Song #11

“Gaudete” is a song from the 16th century (possibly earlier) and one of only two songs sung in Latin to ever reach the Top 50 in England (the other was various covers of “Pie Jesu”). Steeleye Span’s version reached #11 and was even performed on Top of the Pops (!), so I thought it would make a great choice for Song 11 on my hit parade of least-loved Christmas songs.
