Ave Maria (sung by tom balistreri)

This is my first attempt to sing to the music of Franz Schubert.
I wish I would have had a Latin linguist handy, or at least one of the nuns that taught me in grade school.
They would have guided me in the proper pronunciation of the Latin.
Not to mention my timing of the lyric.
(I’ll just blame that on my Sinatra influences.  )
I will return to this music at a future date and attempt it again when I’m confident of the lyric.
In the meantime I humbly present to you my attempt to sincerely sing the classic and sacred song,
“Ave maria.”
Thank you for listening.

Winter Wonderland – (sung by tom balistreri)

Why am I singing this song now you may ask?
Because this is a seasonal song.
Specifically it’s a song about winter.
I always wondered why society in general plays this type of song before Christmas and then stops until the next year.
These songs are about weather and landscapes, not Christmas.
Actually you could play this song anytime of the year.
In the winter, (which by the way doesn’t even begin until almost the end of December.)
it talks about the season.
Or even in the summer. (It can cool you down on a hot day.)
As for myself, I was thinking about this song as I was taking my morning walk the other day.
The video is pretty basic.
It’s just me walking the woods.
But as I walked I was thinking of this song.
So let’s imagine this song is playing in my head. lol
So here is my mental singing of the classic WINTER song,
“Winter Wonderland.”
Thank you for listening and watching.
