A little Christmas music

I wanted to share this sample of the Barra MacNeils singing "O Come Divine Messiah." It's not the whole song, but long enough to enjoy. The Barra MacNeils are a family from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and their Christmas album is one of our favorites. (The first Christmas album, that is--they just came out with another one that we didn't like quite as much.) When we were in Newfoundland, Doug went to see the Barra MacNeils at one of the pubs downtown, and sat right next to Great Big Sea's Allan Doyle. Oooh.

Last night we went over to the Tracys' for their annual dinner, and I took along my musical pipes. "Carol of the Bells" proved to be too difficult (possible, with practice, I'm sure), but "Silent Night" with harmony was lovely.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Wow that was just gorgeous! Hope y'all had a wonderfully blessed Christmas!

P.S. Kate's singing is so sweet. Give her a big hug on her birthday from me. (((Kate)))
