The snow banks are high, the snow drifts deep

Tuomiojärvi180301

Christmas is almost here. Deep snow drifts is what we want, but will we get them? At least we can sing about them.

My choir sang this carol by Jean Sibelius at our Christmas concert this year.

We do not have a recording yet, so here is Turku University Choir and Collegium Musicum Turku singing it in Archangel Michael’s Church in 2013, conducted by Mikko Sidoroff.

And the snow in the photo is from the lake outside my house, taken last January.

Wishing you a blessed, joyful, peaceful Christmas.
