When I was growing up, Christmas was a really BIG deal. Music was always playing and the house always felt festive. Two albums (LP records actually) that are most engrained in my memory are Boney M and a musical called Glory of Christmas. They were probably two of my mom's favorites and somehow ended up being mine as well. For YEARS now, I have looked for an updated way to listen to the Glory of Christmas. No luck. Not on iTunes or anywhere else unless I wanted to pay outrageous dollars for an original LP. I, in fact wanted something a little more up to date than a record. After MUCH internet searching, I managed to locate and contact the couple who wrote and published the original musical. Oh. My. Goodness. I was elated!! After a couple email exchanges with Mr. Owens, I sent him some money via Paypal and just today I received a burned copy of the musical in CD form. Today, on February 28, I am listening to Christmas music! What wonderful and happy memories are filling me today!
