The Ninth Day Of Christmas 2013-14

Today is the ninth day of Christmastide. According to the many versions of the English carol about these twelve days, on Day Nine you can have your choice of drummers drumming, lords a leaping, ladies dancing, pipers playing, or bears a beating. Today's art is a selection of New Year's greeting from the inventory of the Wiener Werkstatte art community active in Vienna in the early decades of the last century.

Music for today removes us from the crowds and noise we may have experienced hours earlier and takes us into the quiet of a starry winter night and the vastness of an new and empty year.
