  1. MCL – You are right. This video is brilliant. Thanks for sharing it with us. Also, I have been enjoying Christmas in September, courtesy of David Archuleta and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Have you seen and/or listened to it yet? It is FABULOUS BEYOND WORDS. You will love it. I can’t wait to read your expert opinion on “Glad Christmas Tidings.”


  2. Kirsten – David’s Christmas offering is high up on my “to do” list. I cannot wait to indulge myself. Time – what I need is time. I am sure this is a wonderful CD and DVD and can’t wait to see the Christmas show on the television.


  3. Yes, MCL, take all the time you need. This is music that deserves time to ponder. And, watching/listening under too much stress probably would diminish your enjoyment a bit. Take it slow and savor it. Best wishes! Masterclass Monday is a great idea!

    I don’t mean to ever put pressure on you with my suggestions. I hope it doesn’t come across that way.


  4. Oh not at all Kristen. I get frustrated with the lack of time and it’s nice that the readers remind me from time to time of music projects that interest me.

    I certainly relish the perfect moment to enjoy David’s latest Christmas offering. And, in doing so, I will be more than happy to publicize it on my site. Stay tuned. It will happen. 🙂


  5. I’m glad to know that you appreciate suggestions. You are able to put a technical spin on my enjoyment of music. It is fascinating and increases my ability to find such aspects myself. I can listen to a singer and like their performance, but if I know their technique is sound, I enjoy it even more. I love your site!. Keep it up!
