I was reading a substack newsletter and todays selection was in the comments section.
It was Christmas music from Ukraine. The Orthodox Church traditionally celebrates Christmas on January 7. However, the Ukraine Orthodox Church has given their churches the ability to chose either the traditional date or December 25. Because of the interference of the Russian Orthodox church many Ukrainians are choosing to celebrate with their western neighbors.
Politics aside, this is some great music.
My favorite carol to sing is Silent Night, we did it so often in high school chorus that if I don’t catch myself, I automatically start doing the bass line. Here are The Temptations doing the definitive Silent Night. At least for this year
Here is my Christmas youtube list, I just keep adding to it.
