Der Bingle is back from the Big Apple! It was a spectacular trip, with the Radio City Rockette's Show, the Nutcracker Ballet, roasted chestnuts, Rockefeller Center, Christmas trees galore, and a special opportunity to meet one of my absolute favorite musicians (more on that later). I'll post a few pictures here soon, but tonight I want to get back to sharing. This season is zooming by, and I have quite a few shares to go, so on with the show...
Last season I shared out two records put out by Hallmark in the late 80's. This year, I have three more. All of these records are exceptional collections of Christmas music, as is to be expected from a company like Hallmark. I hope you enjoy them.
Tonight's share is their 1986 contribution to the sounds of the season, titled "Listen to the Joy". It features 12 songs, performed by Placido Domingo, The London Symphony Orchestra, The Vienna Boys Choir, and Placido Domingo Jr. One of the songs, "The Gift of Love", was written by Placido Jr.
And so, without further ado, here is "Listen to the Joy"
