Yes, I know I’m behind on carols. Hoping to catch up tonight…but first something just for fun.
A couple days ago I posted a recording of “Angels We Have Heard on High” as part of my Advent Calendar of Carols series. Though my sister likes the song, she really wasn’t crazy about the recording…she felt it was too, well, rigid and pretentious. (Or something to that effect. :D)
So of course I challenged her to find a better one. A few minutes later she came back with this:
Honestly, I would never have thought such a beautiful tone could come from an instrument made out of a vegetable. It’s like a wooden recorder, only richer and even more soulful. This guy has a number of video clips out, each featuring an instrument made from a different fruit or vegetable. A must see! (Though the broccoli is my favorite.) 😀
