I heard one o fthe most beautiful choral pieces I have ever heard on December 25th between about 9:25 and 9:45 PM. (I came in in the middle.) I think the announcer called it something like "koalihu" (phonetic), although that may have referred to an earlier piece. Please tell me what it was, who wrote it, and where I can get a recording of that performance or another performance.

OK. It's not Christmas anymore.

Change? 1)That I can find David's blog in less than 20 minutes, and 2)more klezmer or Balkan brass or something to help me through all these dishes I have to wash by hand or I'll have to switch to a Latino station. To get me through the dishes.
