Thanks, Kara, it's in the box. That's too bad about yours, Timothy. I have a cold or something now, so that's put paid to any delusions I had about getting one of my own in at the last minute. Ah well, next time!

Thank you, Kara! Oh, I am so sorry we won't be hearing you this year, Laurie Anne. :( I always love your carols.

That sounds fine, Liam. Have you found a PD source for the music? I am currently looking but haven't found one yet - there simply must be one. I will keep looking. :)

As for me...

Hi Ruth

I am afraid the kids and I have been struggling with sickness so long (several weeks of coughing, and stomach flu on top of that) that I don't think we will make it for this year's collection :(
Sorry...

Oh, that is so miserable for you, Nadine. :( I do so hope that you are all fully recovered in time for Christmas. Don't worry - there's always next year!

Sorry,

Oh, this is so much more complicated than I thought. Though words and music for Leise Rieselt der Schnee are attributed to Eduard Ebel, and the facsimile of the original publication is online (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Gesammelte_Gedichte_%28Ebel%29), it is just a collection of poems and does not contain the musical score.

I did find it here (http://www.liederseiten.de/Lied.php?i=36&s=0), together with the date of publication, but I expect this source does not qualify. Please let me know if it does.

There is such a wealth of wonderful German carols, it's such a pity not to include a few but none of the sources given are of much use. I'll see if I can find something better somewhere.

The more I look, the more convinced I am that it is a traditional melody. You go ahead, using that source, Liam. Every mensch and his hund seem to put a copyright notice on it with no valid claim at all.

As you will notice, I have returned. :D

Now to get the mic up and running...

Ruth,

Welcome Back! Hope the microphone behaves.

Leise Rieselt der Schnee by Eduard Ebel has been uploaded:
http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/rg/leiserieseltderschnee_ebel_ln.mp3

Length: 1:25

I hope quality is acceptable. Sorry, first song -- a bit awkward.

Still haven't found a good source. There are a few more here:
http://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Weihnachten
but only Tannenbaum has a score.

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been one since my last confession. :hmm: I mean, it has been one year since my last LibriVox recording. :oops: Between 2009's and 2010's collection, I didn't know what song to record, so this is Elli's suggestion. We can all blame/credit her for the results. :lol: :wink:

I only had time for the first and last verses, so it's great that Sean sang the full song. I essentially used this 1916 sheet music for the performance http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/Images/Hutchins/We_Three_Kings_344.gif -- but I tend to misread the music. Somewhat. :twisted: :mrgreen:

Bravo! Right up to your usual standard, Ryan! Much fun. :clap:

Liam, singing is even more terrifying than reading, isn't it? I feel exactly the same way. But have no fear, it is lovely. :) Elli will enjoy PLing this one particularly, I am sure.

So, here's a last-minute recording of "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen".
I'm still recovering from a cold, so bear with me. :D

I'm not sure about the quality, my mic seems to do these little hiccups lately. Will it still do?

Here's the info:

Music: Es Ist Ein Ros, Anonymous, 16th Century
(Arr. by Michael Praetorius, 1609)
Length: 2:45
Source: http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/NonEnglish/Es_ist_ein_Ros_entsprungen.htm
File: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/rg/esisteinrosentsprungen_anonymous_eh.mp3

Thanks for PLing!

Eva

You still have at least 24 hours... I still haven't got my sound set up properly :lol:.

Thank you Eva. It's a bit late here, so I'll listen tomorrow but I am sure it is beautiful. It is a very fine hymn.

I really want to do some slovak christmas carols, but can't find any PD sheet music for them (or any sheet music for that matter). Top choices would be Do Mesta Betleme and Ticha Noc, but Búvaj Dieťa krásne could also be fun. If anybody knows where I could get some, I'd love help!
