    It's That Time of Year: Blog Caroling with Footnote Maven, "Silent Night" on the Heirloom Music Box

    Thank you, footnote Maven, for this wonderful tradition to pause again and listen to the beautiful sounds of Christmas music. Last year I nominated Stille Nacht accompanied by a (rather grainy) photo snapped of a German church steeple high above the Rhine Valley one December night in 2003 in Stille Nacht is Still My Favorite.

     

    I knew there was a reason that photograph was a favorite! Not long ago Mr. Curator brought home a large inlaid music box he inherited from his parents. It was prominently displayed in their living room in front of a set of large French windows; and every holiday, the box would be opened, brass records carefully selected, and the hand crank firmly turned. Then the music would begin. Enjoy!
