On this Sepia Saturday, first I want to extend my gratitude to Alan and Kat for creating the Sepia Saturday blog, and inspiring us the whole year through, and to Marilyn for handling blog administration. Thank you so very much!
A couple of years ago I created this video for the tradition of Blog Carolling, which was instituted by footnoteMaven. The video features many sepia images of my Irish family — there are a few colour images as well — so on this Sepia Saturday once again I offer 'Nollaig Shona Dhuit', Merry Christmas to All!, a musical journey through photographs of my wonderful Irish family across time. The images move to the accompaniment of 'The Wexford Carol', a very beautiful and traditional Irish Christmas carol. Alison Krauss sings it, accompanied by Yo-Yo Ma on cello and Natalie McMaster on violin. The carol is said to have originated in 12th century County Wexford, Ireland. I hope you enjoy it. Clicking on the video start will bring you to YouTube to view it.
Nollaig Shona Dhuit, Merry Christmas to All!
