No link again today, sorry.

On the mix I made, today's entry is "Christmas Trilogy" by Finest Kind. I had never heard of this group until I went to Newfoundland this summer; my friend Esther had bought their CD For Honour And For Gain, which is full of splendid stuff, including John Barleycorn Deconstructed which I heartily recommend to anyone who likes singing harmony.

However! "Christmas Trilogy" isn't on Grooveshark (I am afraid of their TOS, as I explained on Day 5), nor does it appear to exist anywhere on the Internet in audio or video form. (Although I did find this excellent post featuring another good Christmas playlist while looking for it, so all is not lost.)

So today we are having a fill-in song: "Goodnight Persephone" by Alejandra Ribera. Fittingly, or at least symmetrically, the ONLY place this seems to exist is on YouTube. I wish she would put out another CD! Or put this out as a single!

Once again, CBC gets the credit for introducing me to this incredible performer. Her voice is so distinctive and powerful; I can't immediately think of another singer quite like her. I'm pretty sure she sang this at Sounds of the Season last year. It's not strictly a Christmas song, but it is a winter song. I hope you like it.
