Day 11 – Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

It’s Christmas Eve, so what better choice than Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra?

This stunning medley of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Carol of the Bells is one of my all-time favourite songs – not just for Christmas, but for life!

The piece was first released in 1995 on their debut album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories, and cas captured the hearts of many a music lover since then. The heady combination of a classical orchestre with a modernsound contributed by an electric guitar is superb.

I had never seen this video before now, but I have to say, desite the general twee cheesiness of the set-up, that little girl totally rocks!
