    Goosebump music

    On such a foul day, I'm trawling through my music collection as I wrap presents.

    I thought I'd post links to some of my [new] goosebump favourites. Both these are from Andrea Bocellli

    I heard Bocceli and son on the One Show last week.( I think it was the One Show...) I have to say their voices blended together beautifully as you would expect from singers who are related to one another. My favourite Christmas music is a very old album by Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Leontine Price and Arthur Fiedler with the Boston Pops called “Christmas in New York”. I have it on cassette tape and listen to it every year. It has a wonderful blend of Sacred and secular music for the holidays. It reminds me of going around Rockefeller Center in Midtown Manhattan to see the tree and all the beautiful Angels with lights along the fountains.

    Take care, Helen🎄❄️⛄️

        A bit corny maybe Mrs M. But every time I hear the carol 'Silent Night' I join in with tears in my eyes. Not goosebumps as such but emotional for me.

            "Driving home for Christmas" Chris Rea. Goosebumps and tummy butterflies, we live very rural in the Hambleton hills (James Herriot country) Fondest memories of driving through the beautiful winter landscape into the hills knowing a log fire and warm welcome are waiting.... Off on a winter sunshine ( I hope) cruise shortly on QV , will be home just in time for Christmas. Seasons greetings to all .

                My mum came for dinner yesterday and while I was getting it ready , I asked exactly to play Frank Sinatra Christmas songs. He's a favourite of Mums and his voice was so beautiful especially for Silent Night.

                  Once in Royal David’s City sung by a chorister at the Nine Lessons and Carols at Kings on Christmas Eve,it brings tears to my eyes.

                    For many years when living in London, I used to go to the Royal Choral Society's Christmas concert at the Royal Albert Hall. In the early days I went with my sister but then later took my kids.

                    Quite a few years ago now, they changed the format and the usual repertoire. It completely ruined it for me as some of the music was too high brow for my liking and so not enjoyable anymore.

                    Why they changed it, I have no idea because it was so successful as it was.

                      I love Silent Night too.

                        I love all the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s pop Christmas songs.

                          Opera on MSC gives s both a tingle, especially when the Italians of all ages are singing along.

                            I know this was originally about Christmas music, but can I revive it by mentioning Jack Savoretti and "Singing to Strangers". It is the best CD I've bought in ages, especially "Candlelight". A couple of years ago we were on board for my birthday and the leader of the cast sang "Angels" (Robbie Williams) for me. I thought of sending him a message saying I heard "Candlelight" and thought of him. Then I reconsidered since he is much younger than my daughter!

                              Anything by a Welsh male voice choir brings tears to my eyes. Myfanwy is a particular favourite as well as some hymn tunes.
