On the fifth day of Christmas

On the fifth day of Christmas...

Monday Classics returned to Phoenix FM for the 2nd show, playing more of the greatest
classical hits, keeping the spirit of Christmas going strong!

The Classical Diary broke into two halfs this week; there is loads going on in January to
tell you about - read all about it lower down this page!

The 7pm hour flew by smoothly, almost...the Pirates of the Caribbean weren't quite
where I thought they were, but hey, I am still new to this!)

Here's the music that I played for you.

'Aurora' - Mike Oldfield

'Ach mein herzlibes Jesulein' from Christmas Oratorio - J S Bach

'Allegretto' - Karl Jenkins, performed by 'Bond'

'Herrscher des Himmells, erhore das Lallen' - J S Bach

'Finale' from Scottish Fantasy - Max Bruch

'Abide with Me' - The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

'Up! Good Christian Folk, and listen' - arr. G R Woodward

'Italiana' from Ancient Airs and Dances - Ottorino Respighi
A tribute to the late Richard Hickox MBE who died in 2008

THE WIND DOWN @ 7.30'Somewhere over the Rainbow' - The Salvation Army Band
'Cradle Song' - John Rutter, sung by the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge

'White is the Winter Night' - Enya

The Main Theme from 'Pirates of the Caribbean' - Klaus Badelt

'Ding! Dong! Merrily on high' - arr. David Willcocks

'Sinfonia' from Christmas Oratorio (Part 2) - J S Bach

I shall next be with you on Monday 5th January - the 12th day of Christmas, so we'll
say goodbye to the festive season with some more great music.  See you at 7.00pm after Drive.

In the meantime, Happy Christmas and Happy New Year.
