[Watch] Rufus Wainwright - "Minuit Chrétiens" Live on Fallon

Offering up something a little different for the masses last night, Jimmy Fallon presented his viewers with a musical gift from Rufus Wainwright. He appeared on the late night slot to perform "Minuit Chrétiens" originally by Placide Cappeau. Sound familiar? You may recognise it as the better known Christmas carol "O Holy Night". Fun piece of pub-quiz knowledge: "O Holy Night" was technically the second piece of music to ever be played on radio way back in 1906 courtesy of Canadian inventor Reginald Fesseden (that bit I Googled), the 1906 part I learnt recently at an actual Christmas pub quiz! Whatever, enough facts and fun, hit play at the top and enjoy Rufus' performance courtesy of The Audio Perv.
