Merry Christmas!

A selection of Christmas music for today and tomorrow:


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones AOW.

  2. Christmas Day at a Conservatives household
    Charles and Christy Conservative and their two children Chris and Carey all gather in the living room around the tree to pass out presents.

    Charles tells Christy that she gets to open the first present. As she rips the wrapping off the package she squeals with delight. Oh daddy she says just what I wanted, birth control pills for the whole year, how did you know? Dad says, we'll your mom clued me in but I got them all for free at the clinic, it was just too good a deal to pass up.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and Mr. AOW.
    May God bless your family.

  5. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and the same to all of your readers and followers.

  6. Merry Christmas AOWs!
    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

  7. Happy Holidays to my blogging friends!
    I wish you all a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or whatever your holiday is. We debate and verbally battle for 52 weeks of the year. But as this holiday approaches and the year draws to an end, I want to tell you that you each have some very unique strengths that I respect. Whether we agree on everything or not, I respect you for your opinion

  8. Merry Christmas to AOW, Mr. AOW, and all of her readers!

  9. Many thanks for these beautiful Christmas offerings, AOW! Between your blog and mine we have "an embarrassment of riches" -- musical, textual and theatrical -- to share this Christmas Season. Western Hero too has put up some very interesting musical material.

    As Tiny Tim so famously said, "God bless us, every one!"


    1. That arrangement of In the Bleak Midwinter is extraordinarily beautiful -- the singing first-class. A lovely, quiet way to begin the Second Day of Christmas. Thank you again.

    2. I've never heard a choir perform "In the Bleak Midwinter" any better than the Choral Arts Society does. And the Choral Arts Society performs this piece at every Christmas concert, and the quality of the rendition always garners a lot of applause and, sometimes, a standing ovation.

      I have the Choral Arts Christmas CD with that particular hymn on it. I tear up every time during that last stanza. I was listening to that CD last night as we drove home from Christmas dinner at a friend's house.

      Christina Rossetti was an excellent author., don't you think?
