I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Now that Christmas is officially on the horizon, it's time to bust out the eggnog, the cognac, and READY...SET...CHRISTMAS GIGS!
If the holiday spirit has not descended upon you as of yet, these four selections (from the best "Classical" Christmas Album I can think of) may help. Leontyne's tone (sigh)...
"We Three Kings of Orient Are"
"God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen"
"Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her" BWV 769
