Had a nice dream about Elsia & her husband this morning (hope all is well senofou)

Had a bird's-eye view of their cozy kitchen table and the quilt they were laying out on it (interesting patterns and colors)

In Dulce Jubilo is beautiful. My very favourite is Hark The Herald Angels Sing. I find a good few Christmas carols/hymns a bit turgid, but each to his own. I have a severe aversion to the Coventry Carol.
