July The Seventeenth

Time for yet another installment of The Best Of Christmas In July from Ernie (Not Bert), this time from 2017. It was a long time ago (even though it turns out I didn't post the collection until last year), so the music is a little hard to remember, but at least I can remember when I found St. Nicholas Avenue. It was up on the northern end of Manhattan Island, somewhere in the parts that still retain a bit of a Dutch influence after all these years. I knew as soon as I took the pic that it would wind up on a Christmas In July cover, and sure enough, here it is! Some finds are just that easy. The music is a nice long collection of stuff that was new in 2017, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.  Go give it a listen and I'll see you again in a couple of days.

Now that's a collection that has some meat on it! Nice cover, too.

Any collection with handbells is a good one. :)
