The student choir of Driestar Christian University sings 'The First Nowell'

The student choir of Driestar Christian University sings 'The First Nowell'

In the recording of our Christmas greeting, the student choir of our Driestar Christian University sings the old Christmas carol The First Nowell. The message of this carol is emphasised by students’ depictions of elements from the carols on paper stained-glass ‘windows’, a reference to the stained-glass windows in the Sint Janskerk in Gouda. Enjoy the result!
