Merry Christmas

I was looking for "Regina Coeli" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for joyous burst of C-chord inversion series opening on Youtube, but decided on another of my favorites.

It's not a Christmas song. The words are nothing joyous or celebratory. But I felt the music texture might soothe a tumultuous year with many sufferings.

With an exquisite chord progression in the middle (A-Major to F-Major to d-minor and back to the original key of D-Major).

"Ave Verum Corpus, K618", by Stockholm Chamber Choir with Berliner Philharmoniker by Riccard Muti:

Merry Christmas Ex SKF,

この英語ブログを読む人は日本語が分からない前提で日本語でちょっとだけ書かせていただきます。 千葉県印西市に住んでいるアメリカ人です。 勤務先は水道橋の周辺にあります。 色んな情報があるのですがどうやって提供するのかよく分かりませんので、教示を頂けませんでしょうか。 例えば印西市では市役所が学校の土をとったりするですね。 今日長男の小学校に行ったら、頭に来たんです。中庭に穴を掘って埋めているんですので。 写真とか具体的な数字とかあるので、もし興味があれば是非提供方法を教えてください。すみませんが敬語がちょっと下手です。

Let's hope the true meaning of Christmas will eventually dawn on us all.
Sharing, caring, using our hearts with our minds with respect for our beautiful planet and all its inhabitants, that's what you're doing and we all thank you for that.
I hope you enjoy a healthy 2012 with true love and friendship. Sincerely Elisabeth

Happy New Year from those who never celebrate Christmas (there is more than one Christmas anyway in Christian tradition, not just the Catholic-Protestant one).

Many thanks for the music of Mozart choice. I needed that! Merry Christmas and we will see what next year brings.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank-you for your excellent blog; the truth is so important in these times. I pray for you and your Country, that you remain safe and healthy.

I would like to share this version of Ave Verum, with lyrics and vocals by Jon Anderson of YES. I hope his voice brings you the same peace it brings me.

Regina coeli is a song to rejoice Mother of Christ at Easter time because Jesus has resurrected. However Mozart's music is so beautiful that we can listen to it any day!

Hope you all had nice days!

As Tepco now plans to drill into reactor 2 and look what there is inside, I have a suggestion if you like some nuclear entertainment in these long after-christmas evenings.

There is a great BBC Horizon documentary (45 mins) about Chernobyl, including wonderful original video coverage of the reactor insides and the corium seas.
You'll also see what they found when they drilled into the reactor... Biiggg surprise :)

Indeed... corium is beautiful!
See it yourself!
