This amazing performance will set you up for the day.
You will thank me for sharing this with you.
This was part of the featured 2012 “Christmas at Luther” on PBS. I was fortunate enough to have recorded it. Blew our minds — it was so good. I kept it on my DVR until I had to return it because we switched satellite providers.
“Luther College” in Decorah, Iowa, noted for its musical program, does a gala, “Christmas at Luther” concert series each year. In 2012 PBS aired it and made it famous. As far as I can see PBS has not done another and do not, alas, repeat the 2012 recording.
But, thanks to YouTube we do have access to the 2012 concert.
It was special. This was my favorite. I think the lead singer is magical. I need to find out what happened to him.
In the meantime, please do enjoy this amazing rendition.

We, with great trepidation and a mounting sense of loss, watched the ‘Downton Abbey‘ Finale last night — having recorded it on Sunday.
It was good. Not as dramatic as I had expected. In the end a very British, kind of Victorian, possibly Jane Austenish, ending. Very positive. Upbeat and sentimental.
I gather (see below) that people expected more. Well I definitely would have introduced Michael Gregson back in that Finale. I kept on waiting for him to come and stop the wedding. And when that didn’t happen I would have closed out the SERIES with Carson announcing that Michael Gregson was at the door. Boom! Wouldn’t that have left everybody shocked.
The “Downton Abbey” Season 6 DVD and Blu-Ray are now available from Amazon (U.S.), the DVD a full $10 less than it was first advertised in November 2015.
Before Season 6 started airing on PBS on Sunday, January 3, 2016 I was sure, at the urging of the kids, that I was going to get the DVD, when it became available in the U.S. (as of January 26), even at $30. I am no longer sure. Counting the “2015 Christmas Special” there are 9 episodes on the DVD. But we have already seen 4 of these episodes and the 5th is being aired (for us to DVR) this Sunday, January 31. So when I get this DVD on Monday there will only be 4 new episodes on it. Yes, that is NOT bad but I know that we will just watch them back to back, 2 a day, as we did when we were watching the prior seasons on Amazon Prime. That would mean we would be done in 2 days, 3 days max. That would be it. So, I would rather spin it out for a month. That is the current logic.
