  2. Merry Christmas, AOW!

    I spent many happy hours listening to many different versions of all these pieces on YouTube. The ones I finally selected seemed particularly fine to me. As close to ideal as it can get in my pretty well informed opinion.

    This one is so sprightly it made me chortle with glee.

  3. It is that, Finntann. Did you notice how every syllable just dances with freshness and vitality?

    Not two notes are exactly all. They all go somewhere with a clear sense of purpose.

    WONDERFUL!

  4. This is really outstanding. It's witty and reverent at the same time. That's no easy trick. Your selections are terrific, FT.
