My mom, dad, and I were all lifelong church choir singers, but Mom and I haven't been to church in recent years, since I moved back to help her through my dad's final illness and her small-city congregation has become so right-wing that we feel unwelcome. We miss sacred choral music a lot, and even our stereo amplifier isn't working at the moment, so we won't have CDs again until probably after the pandemic.
I wouldn't normally attempt to listen to YouTube, as it only deluges you with advertising, but just as a courtesy, could someone say what the city is, and what the music is that's being recommended?
SD3's post made me think of some elderly friends of ours who have a longtime favorite LP from a Bavarian town known for its Advent or Christmas music, whose name I've unfortunately long since forgotten, and the file was on some long-ago computer. Once years ago I made them a translation of the German text, which included some relatively unfamiliar carols. I remember there was also bell ringing, maybe after midnight mass. At that time I found traces of the album online, but no lyrics except on a Russian website that seemed dodgy even long before the current level of hacking. Does that ring a bell with anyone by any chance?
I got one or two hits searching on 'A Bavarian Christmas.' This one, for example, only turned out to be a bunch of YouTube links, but maybe they would please some of you YouTube fans.https://kwhmusic.blogspot.com/2010/10/christm...
