Christmas 2010

I am presently working up a post which will appear after Boxing Day on a subject about which we will have an awful lot, once this snow melts.

In the meantime, rather than post a carol, I thought the following would be of interest, in that it is sufficient to make a grown man cry - as does a great deal of Mozart's music. This particular version features Emma Kirkby with the Academy of Ancient Music and the Winchester Cathedral Choir.


May I wish all readers a most enjoyable Christmas and I hope the New Year brings everyone that which they wish for themselves and their families.

God Bless.
