Christmas Monday Classics

It was the first Monday Classics show, and thanks to Steve and Bryan
for being there to keep me on air, it all happened!

My best moment was introducing the christmas carol 'Stille Nacht'
perfectly in German, and then failing to be able to pronounce it as
'Silent Night', in English.

I also forgot my name and how to read the time from the anologue studio clock!

These are the tracks I played:

'Russian Dance' (from The Nutcracker) - Tchaikovsky

'Adiemus' (1999) - Karl Jenkins

'For unto us a child in born' (from The Messiah) - G F Handel

'Shepherd's Hey' - arr. Percy Grainger

'And when winter came' - Enya

'Finale' (from Symphony 85) - Joseph Haydn

'Troika (Symphonic Suite for Orchestra) - Sergei Prokofiev

'Stille Nacht' - Gruber

'Highland Cathedral' - Band of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

'Mary's Lullaby' - John Rutter

'March' (from the Occasional Oratorio) - G F Handel

'Carol' (from 5 Bagatelles) - Gerald Finzi

'Somewhere in my memory' (from Home Alone) - John Williams

'In the bleak mid winter' - Gustav Holst

'A Christmas Overture' - Nigel Hess

Please join me on Monday 29th December for the next Monday Classics at 7 for some more great music, only on Phoenix FM.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.
