Nostalgia

Looking around YouTube for songs of Christmas past, I came across this little gem. Paul McCartney (try to ignore him if you can - I never could stand the man) and the Frog Chorus, performed 'We All Stand Together' for Christmas 1984. Much maligned and having had the mickey taken out of it, it remains a wonderful piece of fun. I love the looks on the faces of some of the frogs, especially the big, fat ones at the beginning of the song...

Back to a more traditional theme and today's carol comes from the pen of English poet Christina Rossetti, put to music by Gustav Holst in 1906.
This version is by Loreena McKennitt, a Canadian musician, singer and composer. Beautifully done...
