A blessed Christmas to you all

On this night of Christ's birth I wanted to post some audio from Gian Carlo Menotti's Christmas operetta, Amahl and  the Night Visitors. It is an operetta concerning a blindingly poor mother, in the time of Christ, and her crippled child, and what transpires when the 3 Wise Men happen upon their door. They sing a song, Have you Seen a Child the Color of Wheat, the Color of Gold ... the Kings searching for a saviour prophesied to end suffering and the mother suffering for her child, here present.

Does it not tug at your heart and overflow with love.   A blessed Christmas to  you all.
