Christmas In July 2009-Day The Fourteenth

OK, here're the new shares for today, or, technically, the shares for last Tuesday. I'm still playing catch-up from my short illness, so bear with me. I may not get caught up this weekend, but I'm making good progress.

I'm cheating a little bit again today, as all the shares come from the same LP. The record is only Christmas on one side, so I guess I could share it now or at Christmas time, but I choose to share it now. The LP is The Charm Of The Old Music Box (Hacker Music Box Records 13993), and it's 13 Christmas songs as played by ye old timey mechanical music boxes. Not the little cheap ones you may have had as a kid, but mechanical wonders from the days before recorded sound. It might be a bit much to listen to all these tracks in a row, but put them on random play with other Christmas music and you'll find yourself enjoying them every time they pop up. The songs include Silent Night, Star Of The East, Angel's Serenade, Oh How Joyfully (O Sanctissima), Oh Come All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fidelis), O Tannenbaum, First Noel, Hark The Herald Angels Sing & Ave Maria. The types of music boxes include German Kaliope, Regina, Mira & Polyphon.

Here's the download link. If all goes well, I'll see you later on this evening with another share.

PS-More Christmas on music boxes here, here and here.
