Haven’t done any holiday concerts in a few years, but there’s always good stuff to do…
A compilation from our final practice before our 2016 holiday concerts.
One of my favorite Christmas songs, probably because we live in a place that can be, well…visually challenged. By Amy Grant and Gary Chapman.
A beautiful song by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary, first sung at their 1982 Hanukkah/Christmas concert at Carnegie Hall.
A great cowboy Christmas song written by the master of such things, Michael Martin Murphey.
And here is Murphey’s western spin on I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, which is of course itself based upon Longfellow’s 1863 poem.
SoulAviv’s hauntingly beautiful Candles of Hanukkah.
This one needs no introduction…but notice I give one anyway. Yeah, I’m like that.
You can’t forget the classics, from Irving Berlin to Dr. Seuss…
A song that has been covered by everybody, written by Felix Bernard and Richard Smith (of Pennsylvania, USA, where we enjoyed winter snow for several years).
