Musical Advent/Christmas Calendar 2019


This is the shareable link to the Musical Advent/Christmas Calendar:


It will be posted here daily for you to open one door after the by day...until New Year's Eve and most probably in addition until Three Kings Day!


Please find following the shareable link to the additional calendar for January 1-6, 2020:



Short story:

September 19: My initial post asking if there will be participants for this international project who would like to record an Advent/Christmas tune (preferably with dulcimers).

September 21: What a great feedback! Already 15 musicians like to take part.

September 24: Wow! 27! Which means prolongation of the calendar until New Year's Eve.

September 27: Incredible! 32! So, an additional calendar from January 1-6, 2020 (Three Kings Day)?


Just for fun I posted a map from the USA where all the home states of the participants were colored in - impressing! All the other participants come from the UK and Germany.

Many thanks to you Ariane for posting the calendars it was a great thing to do and I have just loved opening the doors each day. I would like to give a big thank you to all of the players who took part. I hope that this becomes a tradition that we can look forward to each year.

You are unbelievable...if you love doing this, you should keep it up, even missing days you're not in the mood to keep it fresh. Start in again any day and let it be spontaneous. I'll never miss this again if you do it again.

Thank you for the calendars, Ariane. I will miss waking in the morning and opening the new door. It was fun listening to all the different selections.

Thank you very much, Cynthia - great to hear from you again joyjoy

The links to both calendars work for the next half year so that you can open all the doors and can listen to the music.

Gosh Ariane this is amazing. I'm so sorry I only caught the tail end. Can't we watch all of them? are really something else.

Today our "Musical Advent/Christmas Calendar" project is ending with the last little door.
(It will be strange for me tomorrow morning to not post the calendar any more after 5 weeks of doing so.  🙃 )
I would like to thank all who have daily opened the little doors and were enjoying the wonderful Christmas music of the 37 participants...and would like to also thank all the others for their patience to "bear" the daily posting of the calendar.(It must have been like "Groundhog Day" for you  🤩 )

What a fun kick-off tune to Winter (which hasn't really hit here in Ohio yet) to finish out the calendar!  The mix of instruments was just right!
