Music Monday

The season is upon us, I don't know about you but music moves me in many ways. During Christmas it helps set me in the mood, even during those times when I didn't feel like celebrating and wished the holiday would just pass on over me. It occurred to me to share with you some of my favorite Christmas music and artists. I proclaim the next 4 weeks to be Music Monday! (This will also keep me on track with my blogging)
I hope you enjoy my selections as much as I do.

Many of you know love my Scottish heritage, much of my holiday music is Celtic. Today's artist is Loreena McKennitt...if you like these you really should buy one of her CD's!


(I'm not sure the name of the song, it's not on my CD...I was mesmerized by the beauty of the video)

"Snow" One of my absolute favorites from her!


"In the Bleak Midwinter"


"In Praise of Christmas"

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

I'm going to have to find her CD tonight. Music works wonders for me too, and I'm not in the spirit of things this year!

Awesome! I had not heard her Christmas tunes before, I only had The Mask and the Mirror.

I have almost every album she has done--great music! It's been awhile since I listened to her though and coincidentally, just this morning I was thinking about digging up her cd's. Thanks for the listen! (Nice to see you back to posting!)

Beautiful music! I love In The Bleak Midwinter and my favorite version is the one by Twila Paris. I couldn't find it on YouTube, though.

Scotland is a magical country. I love LM's music.
