Holiday Music/Concert Meme

Drew tagged me, but I'm really out of it on this one. I usually keep away from holiday-themed concerts, unless they are serious music, like the Cal Bach Advent program I missed while sick the other week. In general, I never want to hear any standard Christmas carols again. I have skipped anything to do with Messiah for about twenty years, which means I am ready to sing or hear it again.

As for recordings, Christmas from a Golden Age, a Romophone record now reissued on Naxos (I think), the Leontyne Price Christmas album, and sundry medieval sets. That's it for me.

Right, Christmas from a Golden Age was originally issued by Romophone. As that company had no US assets, it was not a target for legal action, and so the CD was distributed here. Now that it's on Naxos, it must be obtained from outside the USA, but it's well worth the effort. (I see it's listed at Amazon UK.)

I'm glad it's still available! I bought Christmas from a Golden Age when Romophone was still around...
