Christmas II

And now for something –not quite– completely different.  A Hungarian Christmas tree (that reminds me happily of Charlie Brown’s post-Miracle tree) and an Italian carol from the 18th century. It’s not just any carol, but written by Francis Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists. And he could write a mean carol. It’s beautiful; I strongly recommend you take a listen.  The recording quality AND the tenor are both excellent. Sadly, it’s in ogg format, so some folks might have trouble.
