Big Around As A Washtub
Past Three O'Clock

Merry Christmas!

If you don't know Britten's A Ceremony of Carols, you should. It's a selection of Middle English poems related to the Nativity, set to music. Here's a performance of the entire piece. 


And here is something I posted a few years ago, a sort of recipe for a very tasty holiday drink. I said then that it was the first and probably only recipe I would post, but I actually have another invention which I will post when the weather is warmer, as it's a very summery kind of drink. (Yes, drink; you can see what interests me in the kitchen.)

Love that piece! First heard it when our school choir did it years ago.

I discovered it by accident when I bought an LP of Vaughan Williams's Mass in G Minor, which only took up one side, and this was on the other side. I ended up liking this better.

Merry Christmas, Maclin! I hope you're having a lovely day. :) I like Britten, but hadn't heard this before. I'm now wondering if that Mass by VW you mentioned was the one I sang in the uni choir all those years ago.

A very nice day, thank you, and I hope you did, too.

yes, very pleasant, thanks.
