Gläns över sjö och strand

Description
A Cristmas hymn much loved in my country. It is my favourite Christmas song along with O Holy Night. I have been singing and hearing it every Christmas since first grade in school. The music was composed 1893 by a Swedish woman Alice Tegner.

Here with acoustic guitar only.

Merry Christmas everybody!

O Holy Night is also my favorite. I've never heard this, but love the phrases that match many other carol/hymns. Wonderful brilliant tone to the strings. Thanks for sharing this.

warmth to melt the snow and heart
Here's a different use of wood to warm the house :-) Your guitar tone and recordings always have such a rich warmth (love that on your CD too.) This is indeed a beautiful piece of music, masterfully played. Thank you for warming the room here, halfway around the world! Here's to a wonderful New Year for you and yours.

Beautifully played Johannes
A joy to hear something from you - I've been a little AWOL from MJ recently and missed your other recent stuff. Will catch up!
My very best wishes to you and your family for 2012.

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
