Singing is Universal …

When a child sings, we listen.  We are awed by the purity and joy captured within the soft tune created by a young voice reaching out to their world. Our hearts respond, without reservation, for we recognize it as our own.

Christmas

“Music is the purest form of art… therefore true poets, they who are seers, seek to express the universe in terms of music… The singer has everything within him. The notes come out from his very life. They are not materials gathered from outside.”
Rabindranath Tagore

  1. Your post is promoting all sorts of thoughts today – the passing on of stories through singing in days before people could write; the singing of common songs in the most unlikely moments (eg soldiers on both sides in WWI singing Carols together during the so called Christmas truce). Yes, singing is indeed Universal.

      You are so right – it is all about story telling!! Remember in the “King’s Speech,” the King was instructed to sing, rather than speak. All the stuttering disappeared. Thank you so much for adding your wisdom. I look forward to every one of your visits.

  4. I loved the rendition of “My Favorite Time of Year”. Christmas is so enriched by all the Christmas music–classical, sacred and contemporary and all the rest. 🙂

      It’s the most wonderful time of the year
      With the kids jingle belling
      And everyone telling you “Be of good cheer”
      It’s the most wonderful time of the year
      It’s the hap-happiest season of all
      With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
      When friends come to call
      It’s the hap- happiest season of all

      And you can purchase the ring tone for your phone!!! What will they think of next…
