A Humble Christmas Offering......


Ask and ye shall receive.....
Many of you have asked to hear me sing and play guitar, so
my husband helped me figure out how to record myself through our computer..... so I present to you a traditional Christmas carol , very rudimentaly recorded in our computer room.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Thank you for singing for us! I really like this song. It reminds me of a painting that I have of Mary holding the baby with Joseph in the backgroud knocking cherries from the tree with his staff. I bought that small painting many years ago on a field trip to NYC with my oldest son, a memento of a fun time together. At that time, I didn't know the song or the legend. I just liked the painting. Wishing you and your family a Blessed Christmas! --Linda H

Alas, with our dial-up connection, I wasn't able to download it properly, but I heard enough to recognize that you have a lovely voice! I've always liked that carol from the first time I heard it--Joan Baez, I think.
Thank you for sharing your gift with us. I pray that you and your family will have a peaceful and wondrous Christmas.

I haven't heard that hymn in so long. Thank you! What a beautiful gift. Could you send me the lyrics or post a link to them? I have found so many versions on the internet. Thanks!

Love it! I like the old North Carolina mountain sound of it. What was that moving about old English songs found in the mountains with Adian Quinn in it?

I'd love to hear you sing in a cafe someday. Joe came over earlier tonght to hear Sufjan Stevens. Now we're both hooked. Too late to buy a CD for Christmas though.

colleen.... that movie is called 'songcatcher' , and is loosely based off of the life of olive dame campbell who founded the john c. campbell folk school in brasstown, NC. also, if you get a chance, try to see 'sing behind the plow' on PBS... it's a documentary about olive and john c. campbell, and very well done.

thank you everyone for the kind remarks.... it's a little intimidating putting a song out there. :)

mike.... your comment made my day... that's the nicest thing i could hear about my little gift! :)
