Currently listening - carrying on my own personal Christmas tradition of playing it every year. I still say it's one of the best Christmas mixes I've heard. Well done!

I enjoyed playing this mix last year and am enjoying revisiting it this year just as much. Truly one of my very favorite Christmas mixes. Thank you!

Wow! This is beautiful! I love the group Kelpie, but did not know about the album 'December Moon' until I listened to your mix, so I'm particularly happy to know about that one. I'm ordering it right away - gotta have it. I also loved the track from Litha, who I'm not familiar with but will definitely check out now. Loved the McCutcheon track 'Christmas in the Trenches.' I know this song from a CD I have by Aengus. I included the Aengus version on my 8 tracks mix 'Battleground.' I was so touched when I first heard this song I had to look it up and ran across a live performance of it by McCutcheon on youtube that's amazing. He recounts how a group of old veteran soldiers who lived through this event would always go to hear him sing that song because their friends and family did not believe that such a thing actually happened. I also love Maire Campbell - beautiful version of Auld Lang Syne. Have you heard Susan McKeown and Lindsey Horner's version of it? Anyway - thank you for a wonderful listening experience. Best Christmas mix I've heard!

Thanks for the great comment.
Maybe I should refer to an earlier mix of mine with nothing but songs about the Great War. I live near Ypres, city of sacrifice for a lot of commonwealth soldiers.

Yes, I noticed your mix on WW 1 - it is one of many of your mixes I will be working my way through. With so many good ones, it's hard to choose what to listen to first!
