Christmas music

Here is one of my favorites. I have the dvd and watch it every year during Advent. Wonderful to watch Michael Crawford keep going up levels here on 'O Holy Night'. Just when you think he's finished and settling down he shoots the lights out. Plus we get the bonus of some very cute children.

Beautiful rendition of that song Scott!

And just to change it up, here are a few non-traditional Christmas songs that I like, each with a different view of Christmas -

The Rebel Jesus - Jackson Browne

Christmas Lights – Cold Play

There Is A Star That Shines Tonight - Sheryl Crow

But I have to say that if I was asked for my favourite Christmas song it would have to be Silent Night because among other reasons, it was the very first song I ever learned to play on the violin and that occasion was a week before Christmas :)

So here's André Rieu playing on his Stradivarius with Silent Night:

André Rieu said:
‘I had the second violin Stradivarius ever made, from 1667. I bought that for around £800,000 but I sold it because it was too small. My Stradivarius now, which is a little bigger, comes from 1732.’
......and I said:
The 1667 Stradi is just my size.......ah, if only I'd know that he wanted to sell it :)

and of course, there's Silent Night with Leonard and Jennifer and Raffi on the violin:

It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

Thanks Bev-- had never heard any of those first three before. I love Silent Night and enjoyed that Rieu version quite a bit. Too bad he sold it before you could make an offer. :razz:

Here is Michael McDermott doing "Little Drummer Boy":
