How about a thread for some of our favorite Christmas music?

Here is a link to one of my favorite groups - Home Free singing Silent Night

Wish we could embed You Tube ...

I really like the harmonies of Home Free and the old-fashioned feel to Silent Night.

Another favorite by Home Free, but with a more modern feel to the arrangement: Do You Hear What I Hear?

https://youtu.be/wIQQDYaoWpc

The beatboxer, Adam Rupp, did the arrangement for this and gave this explanation:

"On the surface, this arrangement of “Do You Hear What I Hear” sparks the imagination with different musical themes, and brings life to several different scenes or imagery about the birth of Christ. However, a deeper understanding of the song reveals a call for peace in a chaotic violent world under the simple truth preached by Christ: love. Originally written during the Cuban missile crisis, a parallel can be drawn to any time when the world needs a reminder to love not hate. The theme of competing voices is echoed in the execution of the 4 different vocal parts that come to clarity at the 4th verse and unify with the same message in 5 octaves: “Listen to what I say. Pray for peace, people everywhere.” -Adam Rupp.

Little Drummer Boy was great! Question though, what was the instrument the lead singer (maybe) was playing that has a squeeze box (kinda) on the back? A technologically advanced, portable version of the pump organ?



I listened to the Allison Krause/Yo-Yo Ma Wexford Carol just last night and had thought it would be a great choice for this thread. Beautiful!

:love:

Had to search, no idea actually.

I believe it's a harmonium:
