Silent Night Holy Night – Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht (yes there used to be silent nights…



A new interpretation of a worldwide well known piece of music from a not so usual point of view: Imagine you were Joseph — who is not the father of ‘his’ son in this silent night …

This is what I had in mind creating this interpretation for piano; to give Josephs feelings a musically expression.

If you like it feel free to share!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Christmas! Handel – Messiah – Hallelujah Chorus


animated_christmas_tree_2013 (1)


From Andre Rieu’s “Live From Radio City Music Hall” in New York City 2004, with the Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Harlem Gospel Choir.

Though heavily romanticized, it is one of the best renditions of this magnificent piece, in this one’s opinion.

Quotation: Virginia Woolf about self development and application


Life for most people compels the exercise of the lower gifts and wastes the precious ones, until it forces us to agree that there is little virtue, as well as little profit, in what once seemed to us the noblest part of our inheritance.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

 

Today’s Birthday: GEORGES-MARIE GUYNEMER (1894)


Georges-Marie Guynemer (1894)

A top French fighter ace during World War I and a national hero, Guynemer shot down 53 enemy planes and survived being shot down several times before he presumably died in a firefight on September 11, 1917. During an engagement that fateful day, Guynemer’s plane disappeared, reportedly shot down by a German pilot who was himself killed in action weeks later. To ease the blow of the loss of their young hero, French schoolchildren were taught that what had happened to him? More…

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: THE TANGIWAI RAIL DISASTER (1953)


The Tangiwai Rail Disaster (1953)

On December 24, 1953, an overnight express train from Wellington to Auckland, New Zealand, was crossing a rail bridge over the Whangaehu River near Tangiwai when the bridge collapsed, sending the engine and first five carriages into the river. The sixth car teetered on the edge, giving a passersby and a guard time to save passengers before it plummeted into the river. Fortunately, the last five carriages remained on the tracks. What had weakened the bridge just minutes before the train arrived? More…

 

News: MOTHERS PREDISPOSED TO “BABY” BABY


Mothers Predisposed to “Baby” Baby

Mothers are often criticized for “babying” their youngest child, but we should cut them some slack—they may not be able to help it. Researchers say mothers can estimate the height of their older children with a fair degree of accuracy but consistently underestimate the height of their youngest child by an average of 3 inches (7.5 centimeters). This height illusion could be an adaptive mechanism that makes mothers more likely to nurture and protect what are typically their most vulnerable offspring. More…

 

Article: THE LLIBRE VERMELL DE MONTSERRAT


The Llibre Vermell de Montserrat

On a narrow terrace more than halfway up the precipitous cliffs of Montserrat in Spain is a Benedictine monastery that houses a library. Perhaps its most precious item is the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, or Red Book of Montserrat, a manuscript containing devotional songs by unknown composers. Filled with songs for pilgrims, the manuscript was completed around 1399 and once contained 172 double pages, but more than 30 have been lost. Why does the manuscript have “red” in the title?More…
