IN DULCI JUBILO

Beautiful! IN DULCI JUBILO is one of my favorite Christmas carols. Merry Christmas to you! The original German/Latin song was written by Dominican monk Henry Suso, circa 1320. The English version by Robert Pearsall (1834) follows the original Catholic German “macaronic” style of mixing Latin with the vernacular language. Pearsall was an English composer living […]

Kitty Cats’ Christmas by Leon Redbone

Can’t help it. As a lifelong lover of cats, current owner of 2 boys and feeder of 2 more feral girls, this is one of my favorite Christmas songs because it’s so true! No need to buy gifts for your kitties – they delight in crunchy paper bags, batting toilet paper rolls and sleeping in […]

Mixed emotions on the movie ‘Les Misérables’

Published and argued at CatholicLane Thanks to a friend and diehard “Les Miserables” fan, I saw the movie musical but have mixed emotions about it.

The Alarm is calling

More big hair and big music. Way back when, I first heard this song on The Alarm’s “Declaration” album. It’s got theological flair like “I Still Believe” by Michael Been and The Call.
