The decorations are finally up, and we are doing our best to bring joy into our home, so once again it's time to celebrate the season by Blog Carolling. As I reviewed this video of images I created last year, I thought of footnoteMaven, who originated the tradition of blog carolling, and I offer my heartfelt thanks to her for creating this wonderful tradition.
So here once again I offer 'Nollaig Shona Dhuit', Merry Christmas to All!, a musical journey through photographs of my wonderful Irish family across time. It is accompanied by 'The Wexford Carol', a very beautiful and traditional Irish Christmas carol. Alison Krauss sings it, accompanied by Yo-Yo Ma and Natalie McMaster. The carol is said to have originated in 12th century County Wexford, Ireland. I hope you enjoy it.
On my cemetery blog, 'Over thy dead body', I hope you'll stop by and have a look at and a listen to 'Angels heard on High', a video which includes images of Angel stones I have shot over the years at Glasnevin and Mount Jerome cemeteries in Dublin, set to a traditional carol, 'Angels We Have Heard On High', sung by the Christendom College Choir.
Happy Blog Christmas Carolling!
May you and yours enjoy all the blessings of the season!
