A Merry Christmas to All

December 25th, 2010 by Celeste Fremon

(Gotta post Fairytale of New York again every year or two. Shane MacGowan and Kirsty McColl are still wondrous.)

And late in the day, as we’re lazily doing cleanup, here are a few more.

(Not strictly a Christmas tune but, hey, close enough.)

And then just one more. Here is Rufus Wainwright singing Minuit Chr√©tiens at the Royal Albert Hall. He does it without a mic, with his mother, Kate McGarrigle, accompanying him on the piano and visibly enjoying her son’s waggish performance. The concert took place on December 9, 2009. It was Kate’s last. She died on January 18, 2010, of clear-cell sarcoma.

    Hope you had a Merry Christmas, Celeste. I’m writing on a WiFi equipped bus from Boston to New York trying to beat the monster storm.
