Advent Calendar - Evening Bells

It's simply not Christmas unless there is music playing throughout the house. This is the first and last carol I play. It's playing as the tree goes up, as I bake cookies or make nut rolls, as we wrap and unwrap presents. It's the Christmas recording I would want were I stranded on the proverbial desert island. I can sing all the other carols I love. I cannot sing this. Only the incomparable Ivan Rebroff can.

  1. Susan, I love this, it is saved and I'm playing it for the third straight time. Every time I play it, I will thank you.

  2. I'm so pleased you like it, Barbara. I just spent an hour listening to the Sirin choir Greta posted. It's a joy to share gifts of the season!

  4. Oh, Susan - I am a huge Ivan Rebroff fan. He was part of my introduction to Russian music, and there is NUTHIN like a Russian bass. I always felt like I was flying off to heaven when I heard him sing this song. I am so glad that you enjoyed the Sirin choir. My husband won major brownie points with me for finding them. Have you heard a CD called Basso Profundo? I think you'd love it.
