    Canciones navideñas en inglés

    La siguiente lista que hemos preparado en este artículo te mostrará algunas de las más tradicionales canciones de diferentes géneros que van desde “carols” hasta música popularizada por grandes cantantes de la música pop.

    1. O holy night

    Un párroco local pidió a Placide Cappeau, un vendedor de vino del sur de Francia, que escribiera un poema festivo en 1847 para celebrar la renovación del órgano de la iglesia.

    Cappeau sintió que debería ir acompañado de música, por lo que se acercó a su amigo Adolphe Charles Adams. El texto de Adams reflexiona sobre el nacimiento de Jesús y la redención de la humanidad. O holy night es uno de los christmas carols más escuchados de todos los tiempos.

    canciones navideñas en inglés

    Oh holy night
    The stars are brightly shining
    It is the night of our dear savior's birth
    Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
    'Til He appeared and the soul felt it's worth
    A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
    Fall on your knees, oh, hear the Angels' voices
    Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born
    Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine
    A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'
    Fall on your knees, oh, hear, hear the Angels' voices
    Oh, night divine, yeah, oh, night when Christ was born
    Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine
    Oh yes, said rise (oh night divine)
    It is the night of the Lord savior's birth
    Oh, night divine (oh, oh, Lord, baby)
    Oh, night divine (it was a holy, holy, holy, oh)
    Oh, oh, oh, oh (oh night divine)

    Oh night divine, oh night, holy night!
    Oh night divine, oh night
    Oh night divine, oh night, holy night!

    2. Wonderful christmastime

    La interpretación de Diana Ross del favorito festivo de Macca es definitivamente una versión suprema empapada de cuerdas y campanas de trineo, suena un poco más saludable y antigua que la original, especialmente cuando se tiene en cuenta su aún mágica Soprano. Esta es una de las canciones navideñas en inglés más sonadas y conocidas por los amantes de la música de esta época.

    3. Silent night

    Originalmente escrita en alemán, 'Stille Nacht' fue compuesta en 1818 por Franz Xaver Gruber con letra de Joseph Mohr, y fue traducido al inglés en 1859. Durante la tregua de Navidad de 1914 durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, el villancico fue cantado simultáneamente por inglés y Tropas alemanas. Este es otro de los carols más conocidos y populares.

    Letra

    Silent night, holy night!
    All is calm, all is bright
    Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
    Holy Infant so tender and mild
    Sleep in heavenly peace
    Sleep in heavenly peace

    Silent night, holy night!
    Shepherds quake at the sight
    Glories stream from heaven afar
    Heavenly hosts sing 'Alleluia!
    Christ the Savior is born
    Christ the Savior is born

    Silent night, holy night!
    Son of God, love's pure light
    Radiant beams from Thy holy face
    With the dawn of redeeming grace
    Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
    Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

    4. Jingle Bell Rock

    Tras su lanzamiento en 1957, esta canción de rockabilly encabezó las listas navideñas cinco años seguidos, lo que la convirtió en un verdadero clásico navideño incluso a principios de los sesenta en la voz de Bobby Helms. Hoy en día conserva una presencia imponente en el canon navideño, sinónimo de festividad por lo que es una de las más conocidas canciones navideñas en inglés.

    Letra

    Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
    Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
    Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
    Now the jingle hop has begun
    Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
    Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
    Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
    In the frosty air
    What a bright time, it's the right time
    To rock the night away
    Jingle bell time is a swell time
    To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh
    Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
    Jingle around the clock
    Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
    That's the jingle bell rock
    Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
    Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
    Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
    In the frosty air
    What a bright time, it's the right time
    To rock the night away
    Jingle bell time is a swell time
    To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh
    Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
    Jingle around the clock
    Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
    That's the jingle bell
    That's the jingle bell
    That's the jingle bell rock

    5. O come all ye faithful

    No está claro quién escribió la música o la letra de este himno. Los posibles candidatos incluyen al rey Juan IV de Portugal y John Francis Wade, mientras que los compositores Handel y Gluck han sido sugeridos como los cerebros detrás de la melodía.

    El himno también aparece en la película de 1992 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, cuando es interpretado por una orquesta sinfónica en el Carnegie Hall. Se ha convertido en una de las más tradicionales canciones navideñas en inglés.

    6. The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth

    Este encuentro surrealista en el especial de Navidad número 42 de Bing Crosby entre The Thin White Duke y el buen chico de la televisión familiar estadounidense se ha convertido en una leyenda. Después de que Dave confunde a Bing con un mayordomo y Bing se burla del gusto musical de Bowie, se lanzan a un popurrí de "The Little Drummer Boy" y "Peace On Earth". Los resultados son asombrosos.

    Letra

    Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
    A newborn king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
    Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum
    Rum-pum-pum-pum, rum-pum-pum-pum

    Peace on Earth, can it be? (Come they told me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Years from now, perhaps we'll see? (A newborn king to see pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    See the day of glory (our finest gift we bring pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    See the day, when men of good will (to lay before the king pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Live in peace, live in peace again (rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Peace on Earth (so to honor him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Can it be (when we come)

    Every child must be made aware
    Every child must be made to care
    Care enough for his fellow man
    To give all the love that he can

    I pray my wish will come true (little baby pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    For my child and your child too (I stood beside him there pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    He'll see the day of glory (I played my drum for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    See the day when men of good will (I played my best for him pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Live in peace, live in peace again (rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Peace on Earth (then he smiled at me pa-rum-pum-pum-pum)
    Can it be (me and my drum)

    Can it be

    7. O Come, O Come Emmanuel

    Cantado tanto en Adviento como en Navidad, este himno se origina en latín, pero fue traducido al inglés en 1861. La música del himno se compuso de tal manera que las palabras en inglés y en latín se pueden usar indistintamente. Si buscas canciones navideñas en inglés que sean carols tradicionales, sin duda ésta no puede faltar en la lista.

    Letra

    O come, O come, Emmanuel,
    And ransom captive Israel,
    That mourns in lonely exile here,
    Until the Son of God appear.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

    O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
    Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
    From depths of hell Thy people save,
    And give them victory o'er the grave.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

    O come, Thou Dayspring, from on high,
    And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh;
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

    O come, Thou Key of David, come
    And open wide our heav'nly home;
    Make safe the way that leads on high,
    And close the path to misery.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

    O come, Adonai, Lord of might,
    Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
    In ancient times didst give the law
    In cloud and majesty and awe.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to thee, O Israel.

    8. Santa Claus is Coming to Town

    Hay miles de versiones de esta canción in terpretada por una variedad de artistas desde Justin Bieber hasta Michael Bublé, sin embargo, muchos opinan que la versión de los Jackson 5 es la mejor y la más divertida. Cualquiera que sea el cantante, esta canción navideña se ha convertido en un favorito de todos los tiempos.

    Letra

    You better watch out
    You better not cry
    You better not pout
    I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is coming to town
    He's making a list,
    He's checking it twice,
    He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice
    Santa Claus is coming to town
    He sees you when you're sleeping
    And he knows when you're awake
    He knows if you've been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake
    You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    You better not pout, I'm telling you why
    'Cause Santa Claus is coming to town
    Oh let's go!
    He sees you when you're sleeping
    And he knows when you're awake
    He knows if you've been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake
    You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    You better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is coming to town
    You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    You better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is coming
    I mean the big fat man with the long white beard
    Is coming to town

    9. The first Noel

    Existe la idea errónea de que "The First Noel" es francés, debido a la ortografía de "Noël". Pero en realidad es de origen de Cornualles, y la mayoría de las partituras de himnos optan por la antigua ortografía anglosajona inglesa, Nowell. Este carol es un favorito de los amantes de la música navideña.

    Letra

    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    The First Noel, the Angels did say
    Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
    In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
    On a cold winter's night that was so deep
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    They looked up and saw a star
    Shining in the East beyond them far
    And to the earth it gave great light
    And so it continued both day and night
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!
    Born is the King of Israel!
    Noel, Noel
    Noel, Noel

    10. All I Want For Christmas Is You

    Sorprendentemente, el innegable clásico navideño de Mariah Carey nunca llegó al número uno en 1994, pero desde entonces ha enmendado su reingreso al Top 40 cada año desde 2007, ayudando a cimentar la reputación de Carey como la "Reina de la Navidad". Es por esto que si buscas las más populares canciones navideñas en inglés, esta es una que no puede faltar en ninguna lista.

    Letra

    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas is you, yeah
    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    And I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I don't need to hang my stocking
    There upon the fireplace
    Santa Claus won't make me happy
    With a toy on Christmas Day
    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas is you
    You, baby
    Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
    I won't even wish for snow
    And I'm just gonna keep on waiting
    Underneath the mistletoe
    I won't make a list and send it
    To the North Pole for Saint Nick
    I won't even stay awake to
    Hear those magic reindeer click
    'Cause I just want you here tonight
    Holding on to me so tight
    What more can I do?
    Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
    You, baby
    Oh, all the lights are shining so brightly everywhere
    And the sound of children's laughter fills the air
    And everyone is singing
    I hear those sleigh bells ringing
    Santa, won't you bring me the one I really need?
    Won't you please bring my baby to me?
    Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas
    This is all I'm asking for
    I just wanna see my baby
    Standing right outside my door
    Oh, I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    Baby, all I want for Christmas... is you
    You, baby
    All I want for Christmas is you, baby
    All I want for Christmas is you, baby
    All I want for Christmas is you, baby
    All I want for Christmas is you, baby
    All I want for Christmas is you, baby
