Hello,

so it is already evening in Germany, the longest night of the year has started.
Time for me to wish everyone a peaceful and happy christmas-time or "FROHE WEIHNACHT" as we say in Germany.

Here I have a link to one of the finest german Christmas-songs.

"Es ist ein Ros entsprungen" in a version written by the protestant pastor Michael Praetorius in 1609, a short time before the start of "The Thirty-Years War" (1618-1648), which destoyed allmost of central europe villages and cities and left bled dry countrysides.

Hope you enjoy it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0bCqjlcgM4

Hello,

the longest night has (here) already started, Christmas and the new year is tapping at the door.

So it is time to wish all of you a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY (and healthy) NEW YEAR!

If you like, here is a link to an old german christmas song (which has its roots in the late Medieval period) in a more modern choir adaption.

"Es kommt ein Schiff geladen" (There comes a galley laden), I hope you enjoy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tQb8pcj-aw

Many times less is better and this is one of those. One piano, no guitars, no drums,no dancing around, no low slung pants, no short skirts, no cleaveage, just voices. No need to understand German. The message transends all languages.
Merry Christmas to all.
CORDially Mike and Joan.

If you like, here is some music for this special time of year, the all over the world well known (Austrian-born) christmas-song "Stille Nacht".

Sung by the acapella sestet "The Comedian Harmonists", recorded during the "Great Depression" in 1932.
