Something to Think About

A Little Christmas Tune: The Wexford Carol

Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma perform “The Wexford Carol”

I always try to put this up each Christmas season, as The Wexford Carol is one of my favorite Christmas carols, and I love this arrangement by Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma.

I also think…that with a week left to go until the Christmas…we kind of need a moment to pause to remember why we do all this.

Enjoy!

  1. Wow, this is stunning. The cello is my favorite stringed instrument, and this combo of voice and strings is spectacular.

  2. I like Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma too (two freakishly talented people), but my personal favourite Christmas song is still Tim Minchin’s ‘White Wine in the Sun’. It is not religious but very sentimental.

  3. Lovely. Thanks for sharing. Preparing the way is what the Advent season is all about. A time to reflect and make ready.
