Christmas Music Quiz

Music is one of the aspects of Christmas that I enjoy the most. Tonight was our Ladies Choir Christmas Concert Dress Rehersal. It is such a thrill to sing in this choir of almost 100 voices. I can't wait for Sunday afternoon - the concert is sold out- 1000 tickets! We've even sold the seats we were going to occupy! There is a nice mix of sacred and secular pieces, old familiar carols and new ones you've never heard before.. We will sing in English, French, Spanish, Hebrew and Maliseet! Our audience is in for a treat!
I must give credit to my daughter Laura for this lovely photo of holly in the snow...

Linda, these song titles were a lot of fun! I figured out several of the first ones, but that's all my brain could handle early in the morning (well, it's not SO early, but early for me!). Thanks for sharing them.

Enjoyed your little quiz Linda, and think I may have figured them all out. I Love a good word challenge! I passed them(the questions, not the answers) along, hope you don't mind. Enjoy your Concert and Happy Holidays!

I can't wait to go to the concert. We are bringing Jessie and Emmie, our two oldest grandkids. I know they'll love it and it'll definitely be a great memory for them. I'm going to camp out early to get up front seats for them.

But that photo Linda. So can I please please use that photo for my blog header next December, please. I love that photo. I intended to change my blog header but never got around to it.
