Civilisation Is Not Yet Dead  

by Mary W Maxwell

Six more shopping days till Christmas (not counting Christmas, which is probably also a shopping day).

Es ist ein Ros Entsprungen, written by Praetorius in 1599, performed in Cologne Cathedral, and now at your local railway station:

Lo, how a rose e’er blooming/ From tender root hath sprung/ From Jesse’s offspring coming/As men of old have sung./ It came a flower bright/ Amid the cold of winter /When half-spent was the night.

    That was really beautiful! Thank you Mary. I hope you and Dee and everyone has a wonderful Christmas! Maybe 2017 will have the audience joining in all over the place, including Oz and Boston.

    Beautiful! Thank you for posting these videos.

  3. I am not a believer in religion, but that event made me feel good even if I didn’t understand a word that was sung. Merry Christmas to everyone.
