Mary Black: Mo Ghile Mear

Mary Black’s voice is beautiful and evocative in her rendition of this Irish Jacobite song, Mo Ghile Mear (“My Gallant Darling”).

Sting did a version of this with the Chieftains on The Long Black Veil.


Enjoyable “Downton Abbey” Video Remix

Some Holiday Spirit

I love this carol.

“Huron Carol” or “Jesous Ahatonia”:


Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” performed by Leonard Cohen. My favorite performance of this song.

For a plucky little soul . . .

Samuel Barber’s setting of the Agnus Dei
(his Adagio for Strings, Op. 11 )
