Norwegian Christmas Hymns and Carols # 4

Norwegians are going south, preferably to live in Spain when getting elderly. Like so many others they need sun and warmth when their limbs are getting stiff. Yet they carry the old traditions with them. The old hymns with 12 verses. Most of them need no help to remember.
A child is born in Bethlehem is an old favorite.

This version is sung to an old Folk Tune

I would LOVE to be somewhere in Europe during these holidays. Here in US it is ALL ABOUT MONEY!

Of course we have also beautiful churches. Best one is the salty sea at sunrise--or sunset, or any time-grin!!!

Love the old music, here, we all, even churches looking constantly to modernize music, as everything else.

Do I sound resentful. No, just tired of cheating, stealing, fighting, war(s), constant reaching for power and all the inevitable CHANGE!

Willl feel better by morning!
