Elly Ameling Christmas

Tonight's share is from renowned Dutch soprano Elly Ameling.  The album is titled "Christmas with Elly Ameling", and features eight songs performed by Ms. Ameling.  The back cover of the album states:

"Elly Ameling sings a collection of Christmas songs - famous and not so famous - from Germany (Strauss, Reger, Cornelius), Austria (Wolf), Holland (Diespenbrock), and Spain (Nin)."

Now, I don't speak German, Dutch, or Spanish, so Ms. Elling may be singing about Baby Jesus or driving to Belgium to pick up a Trappist Ale for all I know.  But she sounds good.  Her soprano voice soars alongside the reserved accompaniment, allowing the listener to focus on her performance.

There is a lot of information on the web about Elly Ameling, and she has many albums available on iTunes.  But, fortunately for us, not this one.

I am pleased to share "Christmas with Elly Ameling".
