Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Sunday, December 22, 2019


It may or may not be the most wonderful time of the year but it is certainly one of the busiest.  Since today is Sunday, perhaps you have time to relax, put your feet up, and center yourself before the rush of the next few days.  Let me give a chance to do that with any one (or all) of these holiday offerings:

Peter, Paul and Mary -- The Holiday Concert from 1988.  This one has my favorite Christmas song ("I Wonder as I Wander") as well as Kitty's ("O Come, O Come Emmanuel") and much more wonderful music.  (1:28:34)

Johnny Cash & Family Christmas Show from 1977.   For those who want a bit of country flavor; with special guests Roy Clark, Roy Orbison, and Jerry Lee Lewis.  (44:48)

Christmas in Vienna 2018.  An annual advent concert from the Vienna Konzerthaus, presenting claasical and traditional music by ORF Radiosymphonieorcester Wein under the direction of Christien Arming.  Included in the program are sopranos Valentina Norfornita and and Angela Denoke, tenor Carlos Osuna, baritone Adrian Erod, the Vienna Singing Academy, and the Vienna Boys Choir.  (1:33:32)

A Pentatonix Christmas Tour Concert 2017.  For those who like their Christmas music acapella with a marvelous blend of voices.  (1:14:05)

So, relax.  Enjoy.  And have a great holiday season!
