This is not about blogging, except that one of the fun things bloggers get to do is share links. So here is a link to a free lecture from one of my favorite professors at The Teaching Company:

Masterpieces of Classical Holiday Music

Professor Robert Greenberg will tell you all about three “sheer masterpieces of both classical music and holiday celebration: Johann Sebastian Bach’s sublime Christmas Oratorio of 1734, George Frideric Handel’s rousing Messiah of 1741; and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable Nutcracker Suite of 1892.” You can download this free mp3 lecture until Sunday, January 3. Enjoy!
