On the 6th Day of Christmas, a Little Christmas Cheer From the 70s.

Many moons ago, back in the mid '70s, I came across a gospel singer of Norwegian descent by the name of Evie (full name Evie Tornquist & from 79 on on Tornquist-Karlsson). She was a 4ft eleven dynamo that truly sang from the heart. In 1977 she came out with a Christmas album, Come On Ring Those Bells. Since I don't currently have a working turntable, I haven't heard the music from that album in years. I recently came across a few of the songs from that album on YouTube that brought back some memories of those younger simpler times when Christmas hadn't been affected by my years of working in retail..
1st of all, the title song from the album:


Next up is One Small Child (The video features the album cover):


Oh Holy Night from a '78 Dutch Christmas appearance:


& from that same Christmas Special, Mary's Boychild


Next up, No Room


& one more from that special, 1000 Candles


Finally a more recent version of Come On Ring Those Bells:


These days many artists come out with a holiday album that will be mostly forgotten in a year or 2. Evie's music not only is still fresh, it is a much needed antidote to the secularization we see the world pushing on us to forget what Christmas is really about.

Have a blessed 6th Day of Christmas.
