Great Christmas songs #5

It was hard to find a good version of "O Come O Come Emmanuel;" so many are too slow and ponderous, or the singers are over-emotive, even over-wrought. Here are two that are OK but not exactly right to me. Really, it sounds perfect in church with a bunch of amateurs singing. I guess that's how it was meant to be sung.

I like the Carpenter's version. It's on their album A Christmas Portrait.

However, it's not a full version of the song, I don't think.
