On the twelfth day of Christmas, I listened to the Christmas music I bought with an Amazon.com gift card. The best song was one that was absolutely free. I downloaded “Ave Maria” by Celtic Woman. during Amazon’s “25 Days of Free” promotion.
“O Holy Night” by Point of Grace had been on my wish list for a long time. The song used to get airplay on a local Christian station before the deejays were fired and replaced by syndicated programming.
“A Steinway Christmas Album” by Jeffrey Biegel was on sale for $4.99 when I bought it. Biegel is a friend of Maestro Lucas Richman and has performed in Knoxville several times. Many of the album’s solo piano performances are very relaxing with a few uptempo surprises mixed in. I can picture my family opening presents next Christmas while this album is on. I wonder if I can stream it on my new Sony SMP-N100.
