It's been five years since we've been at the charming Christ and Holy Trinity Church in Westport, Connecticut - good to come back on this pitch dark and not quite snowing night.  Alan's parents came,as did  friends and supporters from New Canaan where we appear every April for a concert and Youth Choral Festival, and a full house of Westporters.

 On we go tomorrow to East Lansing, Michigan where Cortez' friends and relations will probably fill up half the house.

"A Chanticleer Christmas,"  released in September, is on the Billboard charts at #3 on Classical Traditional, #15 on Overall Classical, and #49 on Heatseekers.
