My Musical Christmas Gift To YOU: “A King Is Born” By The Incomparable 2012 Luther College Norsemen.

by Anura Guruge

Merry Christmas 2017.

This amazing performance will set you up for the day.

You will thank me for sharing this with you.

Please ENJOY.


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.

Merry Christmas.

Christmas at Luther — Comfort & Joy” concert from “Luther College” gained International fame in 2012 when PBS broadcasted that year’s concert in the lead up to Christmas. The kids and I definitely were hooked on it. I had it on the DVR and we watched it multiple times.

You can still get the DVD from PBS.


As far as I can see there does not appear to be any plans to show that concert on PBS this year.

So, this online option appears to be our best bet.

Enjoy. Merry Christmas.

Alas, yet again, PBS will NOT be broadcasting the 2015 “Christmas at Luther” concert from Luther College.

The magical, hard-to-forget “Christmas at Luther” we enjoyed in 2012 was a one-off special. PBS did not record (and air) the 2013 or 2014 concerts. Ditto for 2015. Shame.

Some of the ‘local’ Public Radio stations, close to the College, will broadcast the music. See above.

You will be able to find it on the Web. So here is the Broadcast schedule.

Enjoy. Merry Christmas.

This will make YOUR week
and possibly weak at the knees!

I raved about ‘Christmas at Luther’ last year.

Indubitably the best Christmas music show on TV in 2012.

I had it on my DISH DVR as protected and watched bits of it daily.

The Luther College Norsemen were my favorites.

This guy … WOW.

I have a son who must be roughly his age.
I think of that.
I am very proud of my intellectually bestriding son.
This guys parents must be so, so proud of him.

Luther College, of course, is doing their annual Christmas shows.

What I can’t determine is whether PBS will show us the 2013 show or even repeat the 2012 performance.

Till then PLEASE enjoy this.

It is my early Christmas Present to YOU ALL.
