Today's Christmas cd/Tracey Thorn - Tinsel and Lights

I had been thinking of posting something for the solstice which happens tonight just before midnight my time. But instead I wanted to share this album I've been listening to. Tracey Thorn is probably best known for being half of Everything But the Girl. You can read more about her here. This Christmas offering from 2012 is sublime. Serious, thoughtful, unique. I love her voice. She does many original songs, as well as Joni Mitchell's River, and Ron Sexsmith's Maybe This Christmas which I featured two years ago, when my beloved Hazel Nina was 12 days old and weighing around two pounds.

Here is a video of the song Joy.


  1. Thanks, Nan. I'm always looking for new and different Christmas music to add to my ever growing playlist. This is particularly lovely and I will be adding to this afternoon when I get home.
    And I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. Marvelous! I love her voice and the video. Thanks so much for sharing. I've watched it several times.
