Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers (and perhaps also musical elves) who blog about music each Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only on this music train, please!) First, there is XmasDolly, Her co-conductors are: ♥Callie of JAmerican Spice♥, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ Also, co-conducting is ♥Cathy from Curious as a Cathy♥ . And finally, there's me.
To set the mood, a clip of a childhood memory from my growing up in New York City in the 50's and 60's: the WPIX YuleLog. (and no, you don't have to listen to all two hours). On Christmas Eve, WPIX (then an independent station on channel 11) would preempt programming and bring you a clip of a log burning at the Mayor's residence (Gracie Mansion) with Christmas carols playing in the background. Enjoy!
I love a group called Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and would like to bring you some of their music for this Christmas Eve.
The Lost Christmas Eve, from the album (their fourth) of the same name.
Christmas Eve/Sarajevo, the song that introduced me to this group.
And finally, first, a warning that if you suffer from seizures, you might not want to watch this next video.
Although it doesn't mention Christmas Eve, this song has been used so many times by people who set their house Christmas decorations to music, that I couldn't resist one of those videos.
My final selection is "What Child is This", possibly my favorite of all their songs. The power of this song is amazing.
To all my Christian readers, may you all have the happiest of Christmases, one full of happiness - and music.
