MenoSunday; Life Lived Easy

Image result for fourth advent candle

The penultimate Sunday of the year - and fourth in Advent. Would normally put something fairly traditional in this slot. However, one insomniac night, three months back, when plotting this all ahead of time... a moment of distraction happened me upon this. There is a very peculiar few seconds at the beginning - well, actually, there's a couple of minutes of slight peculiarity - but get past that and sweetness develops! Here's the thing. I don't recall ever having heard this before yet, on investigation, there are claims that it is one of the most played Christmas pieces ever. Bing died a month after recording it. This article is an interesting read, if you are so inclined.


  1. Fascinating! The young fellow turned out to have staying power too.

  2. I love Little Drummer Boy and am sure I've heard Bing sing it on his own but never this version. Thanks for sharing it with us. xx

  3. it is great! and it was great to see David... boy was he young that time :o)

  4. This is the first entire Christmas song I have listened to this season. It was lovely.

  5. Hello, thank you for all your visits and comments throughout the past year. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
