And of course the Christmas music stops abruptly at midnight on the 26th. Which, if you're celebrating **Christ** mass, is ridiculous. If you're looking forward to the birth of a special baby, do you stop being happy and excited about the baby on the 2nd day of his life? No. A thousand times no.

I like the European traditions of 12 days of Christmas, where people keep on celebrating until 12th night/Epiphany/Feast of the Kings. Makes so much more sense than what we silly Americans do. Pregnant woman are not at their happiest between week 36 and week 40 of their gestational period. Celebrating when the baby is seven to twelve days old is much more fun!

Agreement totally.

Besides, the Orthodox Christians (Russians for example) celebrate Christmas on Twelfth Night, not on 25 December.


Why thank you.

So for the Fifth Day of Christmas:

Funny that Wildflower was doing the same thing last week, before Annamite posted that link. What's this general nostalgia for the 60's music?

Metamorphosis Four

https://youtu.be/PP-Xgf-1JZk



Wonderful performance of a magnificent piece. Supreme and Spellbinding...

Lavina Meijer -Philip Glass
Since their first encounter in May 2011, rising star harpist Lavinia Meijer has worked with some frequency with Philip Glass, even though he has never written solo works specifically for the harp. Many of his piano works and piano transcriptions, however, after minor adjustments, prove to be well suited to the modern pedal harp. Very keen on playing modern music, Meijer added Glass's five-movement Metamorphosis to her repertoire, and after a first and successful performance (in the composer's presence) at The Melkweg, Amsterdam's 'pop temple,' a first official recording was made for Channel Classics in June 2011. This all-Glass CD further demonstrates the perfect connection between Meijer and this repertoire.

Lavinia Meijer Playing Philip Glass - She is incredible ...

Reviews
''Meijer elevates the idea for the project from a mere novelty...to a moving and persuasive artistic statement.'' --American Record Guide

''These arrangements of pieces by Glass work very well on harp, particularly in these meticulously concentrated performances by Meijer. The effect is mesmeric…'' --BBC Music Magazine

''Positively tranquilizing... Lavinia Meijer is a fabulous harpist, with a silky touch and a voluptuous timbre... Put it on and take a bubble bath.'' --Listen Magazine
