On the Sixth Day of Christmas

Nothing says that the holidays are coming like Christmas carols. I love the old music and the traditional carols, and for the two or so weeks before Christmas, I listen to them at the office and sing along!

I just got the new Annie Lennox CD called A Christmas Cornucopia.  It’s just excellent and I’ve been listening to it all day and watching the videos.

The songs on this album are not done in the classic way. Annie adds all sorts of things, including a choir of children from South Africa and some Celtic additions to songs.annie-lennoxThe digi-pak edition of the CD comes with a lovely little booklet, which looks like it could have been letter-pressed.

Christmas Cornucopia is a great addition to my holiday music library.


  1. Oh the graphics are so wonderful. I have a really stupid question: are you watching the video online only, I mean the video isn't on the CD right?

  2. Love this. Thanks for the heads up. Off to order my copy now.

  3. I love Annie Lennox as well. I saw the CD at Starbucks the other day and was tempted - but now I will get it next time I stop in. Love the cover don't you?

  4. I am a huge Annie Lennox fan! Great tip to look into!
    Why don't you have a look at my give away?

    PS: I send lot's of my friends Woodbourne way!!!


  5. You and your Parissiene illustration get some airplay tomorrow...XXOO

  6. Love this! We're still listening to Sting's Christmas album from last yr! First year we won't be celebrating Christmas in NYC either!
