A Saxon Christmas
On this day...views from Dresden, Saxony, Germany... a view to Bruhl Terrace, birds in flight over the Semper Museum, Christmas Markets, the first cantata in Bach's Christmas Oratorio (BMV248) and an angels call. After a whirlwind tour from England to Australia to Germany and back to England...we are home. One of the best places to be. I hope to bring you more of our travels to Dresden...with a list of things to see and do if you were ever to visit. More of that when life settles down, until then...
An Artist's View...

|A woman in red, with her own unique style, bravo!|
With music in my heart, Bach's Christmas Oratorio...
Lead by John Eliot Gardiner and performed by the
Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists...
and an angel's call for a joyous holiday...

FROM MY HOME TO YOURS... WISHING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,
PEACE, LOVE, JOY...AND A BLESSED NEW YEAR.
