The New Year—A Spotless Tract of Snow

Planning to sleep your way into 2011?

Before you turn off your computer, put on your PJ’s, and turn on your electric blanket, take six and a half minutes to enjoy a beautiful rendition of the ancient Scots poem Auld Lang Syne, which was popularized in print by Robert Burns in 1788 and in musical form by Canadian band leader Guy Lombardo in North America in the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s.

The recording artist is internationally known Norwegian soprano Sissel Kyrkjebø, whose voice has been described as “crystalline.” The nature photography is superb.  Sentiments are thoughtful.

Happy New Year! And good night!
