Tuesday Tune, Vol 20

Today's Tuesday Tune is brought to you by my very favorite Christmas album - Vivaldi's Gloria and Bach Magnificat with Richard Hickox as conductor. You can get yours here. Or you can be my friend for a while and you'll end up with one for Christmas. That is, of course, if you're worthy and you'll listen to it and not only listen to it but appreciate it.

I'm High Brow about Vivaldi's Gloria and the Bach Magnificat.


Today's Tuesday Tune is also brought to you by karaoke. Why? Because lucky-for-you, I've included the lyrics. All of them. In Latin, however, so now might be a great time to brush up on your Latin. I care about you deeply and have therefore included the English translation. Typed with my own digits. (I want y'all to know what you're singing.)

Today's Tuesday Tune is not just one song or a mish-mash of many, its a complete album. A complete one! Incidentally, this one took some time. Not only did I need to find the tune on the YouTube, I had to listen to it for proper representation.

I'm High Brow about Vivaldi's Gloria and the Bach Magnificat.

Wow. My favorite Christmas album is the Carpenter's Christmas album. Preferably on vinyl so it skips in all the right places.

I'm fancy.

Okay, just listened to all of those. Yep. I did.

No wonder it's your favorite. That was awesome. I'll need to add it to my collection.

I will venture back to listen tomorrow for I am zonked. Check out this Christmas Tune. I made my dad a playlist many moons ago (circa '99) and I rolled in laughter over his distaste for this song. I love it. It is sooo classy. And amazing.

Do I get extra points if I have performed your Tuesday tunes?

Just curious.

Love them both.
