Prepare to be blown away. Or not. Tallis is not everyone's cup of tea.

Years ago I was fortunate enough to have a music teacher who introduced me to some rather forgotten composers.

Too many favourites to list them all. Here are some of the favourites of my favourites.

Bach, just about anything.

Thomas Tallis, Spen In Alium.

Palestrina, just about anything.

Mozart, Queen of the Night arias.

To name just a few,

Christmas Traditions

This year we went into the mountains and cut down our own Christmas tree. This has been a fun tradition, everything from getting up @3:00am to go get the permit to getting stuck in the snow and have to rely on shovels, sweat, ingenuity, and kind strangers to get unstuck. What are some of the other Christmas traditions y'all enjoy?
