Captain Kirk

I think it's been a few days since I shared an organ Christmas record with you, so you're about due for one. And look, here's one now. There's a good chance that this one won't be on your record shelf if you don't live in west central Florida. This was recorded in a little chapel up in Dunedin on an organ called The Kirk. Or maybe it's called The Duchess. I'm not sure, and it's a little hard to tell. I had the same confusion last year when I shared this out, and I'm thinking the only way to clear up the issue is to hop in the car one day and go visit. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen this year. None of that matters if all you care about is the music, so without further ado, here is Terry Charles-Christmas With Terry Charles-Wurlitzer Pipe Organ (Private Pressing SYB-635/636, Stereo).

1. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
2. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
3. The First Noel
4. Angels We Have Heard On High
5. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
6. As With Gladness Men Of Old
7. Angels From The Realms Of Glory
8. Joy To The World
9. Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town
10. Silver Bells
11. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
12. I'll Be Home For Christmas
13. Silent Night
14. O Holy Night

Ernie! Thanks for lettin' the folks know about the Kirk of Dunedin! Very popular little church down here, well-known for its organ concerts.

So it is still there? The website hasn't been updated in a while, I thought maybe it was a zombie site. Is Terry Charles still the main man? Tell us all about it!
