10 December: The Trapp Family Singers: Nu är det jul igen

Published December 10, 2012

We haven't had much Swedish christmas music in the Advent Calendar so far, but that is about to change right now as the von Trapp family tackles 'Nu är det jul igen' ("Now It's Christmas Again"). No, not the ersatz posse led by Julie Andrews in the movie version of The Sound Of Music, but the REAL von Trapps. And despite being Austrian, they're singing in Swedish. Doing quite well with the pronunciation as well, I might add, although some of the lyrics are unfamiliar to me. Maybe the song was still sung like that in the early Fifties, when this recording was made.

Listen to it here.
