Home » 20191222 – James DeMeo’s Holiday Musical Selections
Dear friends and supporters,
Last year’s musical Christmas Card was much appreciated, so I felt to reproduce it again this year. Below are a few musical gifts, sensitive and exciting orchestrations and chorus, from several of the world’s master composers.
This year, I’ve added Christmas music from Mozart, included a more exciting performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (Ode to Joy!), and an additional performance of Mozart’s Symphony #40.
I suggest to set up your computer with a good set of external speakers, play while going about your holiday at home. Most have videos of the musicians and choral singers to watch as well. Download for repeat or later viewing. Really wonderful and authentically high-talent people, performing such fantastic music. No movie stars or Hollywood glitter. True talent and deeply focused work. Strong Hearts. Love in Timeless Music, from hundreds of years ago.
Thanks and Good Cheer to all,
Mozart for Christmas, a Selection
