    I love Pluhar's work, and I adore this guy. Saw them perform in New York, and they were riveting.

    I saw Andrea Bocelli in concert last night at Madison Square Garden, it was absolutely phenomenal!

    He sang this song.

    What great posts, guys. :)

    Thank-you.

    Salento, as much as I love Queen, I'd forgotten about their Christmas song. That Sheryl Crow and Eric Clapton one is just FABULOUS! That's going on the Christmas play list. :)

    Jovialis, I love him, and that's one of the best O Holy Night's I've ever heard. I'm officially jealous. :)

    Tomorrow night is the Messiah Sing Along, though, and Christmas is getting a bit away from me this year, so I had to pass. I've just washed my hands, but the rest of me is covered in flour, sugar and butter. :)

    I wish they'd spread out all these wonderful performances throughout all of December and especially January. The latter is so dreary.

    Are you sure you're not just t-rolling?

    After all this is what you said about the Effiel Tower, earlier today:

    i consider the dialect in the song midway between Salentino of Brindisi, Tarantino and Barese.

    This song gets me every time, sentimental sap that I am. Written by Willie Nelson and sung by Roy Orbison, what could be wrong with it?

    This is in honor of my outing last night, which was FABULOUS! :) I know some people might think it's insane to pay a lot of money to go sing, but you aren't backed up by an orchestra or soloists of this quality very often, and in that setting, so it's worth it. Plus, singing it just makes me happy. :)

    https://www.lincolncenter.org/show/n...essiah-sing-in

    As it should be sung: for me this is the definitive version.



    It's become a real "thing" in the Metropolitan area. Every town seems to have a sing along of the Messiah, and there are lots of flash mobs singing it too.

    My favorite flash mob of it:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXh7JR9oKVE

    The reaction of the crowd is the best part. Some even join in.

    Silent Monk's version, which is hilarious. :)

    Sometimes we miss that one of the most mystical, darkly melancholy and passionate piece by JSB is a Christmas chorale ;)

    "I don’t wish you all sorts of gifts.I just wish you, what most people don’t have:
    I wish you the time to be happy and to laugh
    and if you use it, you can make something out of it.
    I wish you the time for your doings and thinking,
    not only for yourself, but also to give away.
    I wish you the time – not to hastle and run,
    but the time to know how to be contented.
    I wish you the time – not to pass just like that.
    I wish that some of it may be left for you
    as a time to marvel and (as a time) to trust,
    instead of just looking at the time on your watch.
    I wish you the time to reach for the stars,
    and the time to grow, that means to mature.
    I wish you the time to hope anew and to love.
    There is no sense in putting this time off.
    I wish you the time to find yourself,
    to see the happiness in each day and each hour.
    I wish you the time also to forgive.
    I wish you: the time to live."

    (Ellie Michler)

    Merry Xmas to everyone :)

    I never understood why (maybe is it recalling "Oh Happy Day?"), but this song has always inspired me so much Christmas

    I really like it because it has that Black Gospel sound which I love.

    One of my good friends is Jamaican, and she was at the church when my children had their first Holy Communion. She was like, no offense, but you need better music! :) I would have argued, but they weren't playing Latin music, but the "modern U.S. Catholic songs", which are, well, not as good.

    She turned me on to this restaurant in Harlem where you can go to have breakfast on a Sunday morning and listen to live Gospel singing. Great, both the food and the music.
