Moving into Christmas and the New Year...

in the Low Countries and parts of France Saint Nicholas day (december 6th)is still popular.


Not many composers were inspired by this saint. Britten's cantata is a gem and quite well known, Guy Ropartz (1864-1955) "Le miracle de Saint Nicolas" less so. Written in 1905, this "légende en deux parties et 16 tableaux" is scored for "soli, voix d'enfants, chœur mixte, piano, orgue, harpe et orchestre à cordes". Sweet!


Noël nouvelet is one of my favorite christmas songs.

I love the cover of the Janacek piano works one!

I'll have to see if I can find some piano samples from that one.

Two from what I could see (checking online).  "Dave" and "Paul".  Perhaps they are permanent "guests" of the hotel, restaurant, or somebody nearby?  Nice of the players though to share their food with them.
