This vid starts off “slow”… it has the musicians coming onstage, etc. It takes a couple of minutes to get “started”… get a load of that basso profundo announcer!

28 June 2014. Video. The Red Army Chorus Sings “Annie Laurie”… May Scotland Choose FREEDOM From Whitehall and Its Delusions

00 Scottish Flag Alex Salmond

May Scotland choose FREEDOM… that’s what I hope for…

If Scotland can choose its future path, why not the Crimea and Novorossiya (as well as Serbia and Srpska Bosna)? If anything points up the EVIL of the West’s position vis-à-vis Novorossiya and its Golgotha, this does. Westerners CAN choose their fate… Orthodox can’t… none dare call it racism. The West is allowing the referendum in Scotland because it thinks that it’s going to win. They may get a very big surprise…

25 December 2012. It’s Time for Réveillon! Feast Ye Bounteously…

00 reveillon. 25.12.12

******

Québécoise chanteuse Julie Dassylva sings an old Québec and French fave, Petit papa Noël

******

Minuit, Chrétiens sung by… the Red Army Chorus!

******

Here’s a more traditional rendering of Minuit, Chrétiens sung by the Quebecker French pop singer Bruno Pelletier… he’s from Ville de Québec, in the heartland of French Canada

______________________________

It’s now about 03.00 EST, which means that all the Quebeckers got back home from Midnight Mass about an hour-and-a-half ago. Trust me… the party’s still on, and it’s gonna roll on till four in the morning, at least. Grand-père has given his blessing to the family, and mama has brought out the bûche de Noël for the dessert after the dinner, but everyone knows that it isn’t a REAL réveillon unless the tourtière is on the table! Yes, I’ve attended a réveillon… and, yes, les Québécois et Québécoises do know how to party hearty. My head knows!
