The perfect Christmas concert

If I had the talent and ability, I would put on the perfect Christmas concert.  It would go something like this:

The opening number, The Secret of Giving

 

Followed by this hit from the Grinch that Stole Christmas (Jim Carrey version) Where are you Christmas?

 

How about an instrumental?  Celtic Carol

 

Back to the singing with the Magic of Christmas Day

 

Then to this (relatively) new classic – Breath of Heaven

 

A family (my family anyway) favorite:

They Stood in Silent Prayer by Charley Pride

 

To finish up, a robust and energetic O Come, All Ye Faithful

 

And for an encore?  Need you ask?!

 

This will probably be such an awesome concert, there will probably be another request for an encore:

 

Please, keep your applause down.

What would your perfect Christmas concert consist of?

  1. A Christmas concert – what a great idea, I enjoyed listening to these! 😀
    The Faith Hill and Celine Dion were my favourites from them all, but actually they were all lovely in there own unique way. The Celine Dion song comes from that beautiful Christmas Album I bought years and years ago now! I’ve been avoiding listening to it recently because it reminds me so much of my mum and dad, it was a little emotional listening to that, but it was good to face it. It’s funny how a piece of music can brig memories back so strong those missing people could almost be standing in the room. Amazingly powerful brains we have, and we only use a little corner of them!! 😀

  2. I did a family video to the Celine Dion song years ago and it has become a family favorite. We watch it every Christmas – even now. I really should update it because it’s almost 14 years old – my youngest niece is a baby in it!
    I still avoid Silent Night because that was my mom’s favorite but I think I can sing all the others now. Do you know how hard it is to avoid Silent Night?!
    I’m glad you liked the concert though 🙂

  3. Impossible to avoid I should imagine!! Silent Night is probably the most popular and well known Carol there is – I feel for you, must painful!!

    I’m finding some of those feelings are wearing off now, associations a lot less intense. But when it does happen it’s often very unexpected, and I think ‘Oh – I didn’t know that would get to me!’ I find it best to let all the emotion go – and let it pass. It’s like my brain has to take a moment just to deal with that – and then move on. I prefer to be alone when those moments happen though, it’s a little embarrassing if I’m not! 🙂
