A little more music from Orthodox Christmas 2013

World-famous Dmitri Hvorostovsky with the St Petersburg Chamber choir, singing "Let My Prayer."

This is a Serbian Orthodox Christmas song for Christmas 2013. I lived in Serbia and also Sarajevo for almost a year.

Russian Christmas Music with Russian Christmas cards, just put on the web for this Christmas.

A Russian Flash Mob on January 16, 2011 in a Mall in Moscow. If you remember, Lawrence had a Flash mob last year, I believe it was at Target.

And if you want to watch what Russian viewers watched live on television for Orthodox Christmas eve, here is the Christmas Service in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

Streamed live on January 6, 2013.

The reason I have completed these two blogs is because there is so little, really, on the media of Orthodox Christmas in this country. Many Americans don't even know that Christmas is celebrated on a different day in parts of the world.
