Welcome to episode 96 of Holly Jolly X’masu! In this episode, I talk about Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio,” performed by the Meiji Gakuin University Glee Club at their 10th anniversary Christmas concert.
I really enjoyed working on this episode and getting this album. It’s completely out of my comfort zone so it was something of a challenge for me. I’m happy with how it turned out, though, and I hope you enjoyed it as well.
Join me back here next week for a real treat. I’ll be talking about the 1968 album, “Christmas Song / New Year’s Song.” If you like Now Sound music, it will be right up your alley. Then join me on the 18th for Kayo Ishu’s wonderful vocal jazz album, “Scat Christmas.” Then listen in on Christmas Day for one of the rarest, wildest Japanese Christmas albums you’ll ever hear, and stick around for an equally funky bonus episode on New Year’s Eve.
As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you’d like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know.
Remember, I’ve added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you’d like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I’ve also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I’ll be trying to add more. Half of any proceeds or donations received will be donated to support the people of Ukraine, while the rest will be used to purchase new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And if you get a chance, leave me a review on iTunes. Thanks!
