Soundtract for both commutes

One of my top favorites for vocal Christmas carols is Gloria. The Saint Michael's singers perform some of the most beautiful, yet untypical carols.

This morning in the cold dark, Vivaldi's "Gloria in excelsis Deo" was nothing short of glorious. This afternoon, the organ accompaniment, so subtle in the first verse of "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks" built majestically as the verses were added. The bass pedals in the final verse literally sounded like feet walking up steps. Wondrous!
