This is exactly what I was thinking and I couldn't agree more. The power that group can generate is truly special.


Escpecially the Missiah [sp???]

I remember The movie the White Christmas was in. 30 or so og my frat brothers went to see teh show. No snow, and now forcasted. When we got out there was 3" on the ground. Great memory from college days. Guess it will noy snow here this year.


Live simply, Laugh often, Wine a lot!!!

The Phil Spector album, not a track I don't like and still play it every year. In fact should buy the CD, soon won't be able to find a cassette player. (Age showing.)

Wynton Marsalis has a couple of good Christmas albums. Not exactly Christmas, but related, Ellington's reworking of the Nutcracker is a classic.

Now that the kids have been out of the house for a while, I can even enjoy Tschaikovsky's original in moderate doses.

The local classical music station plays a lot of pre-Baroque choral Christmas music. That I can listen to.

We went to our favorite Columbian food restaurant for lunch today, and they had a (gorgeous) cello player and a harp player playing only Christmas music.

It was very moving.
