5 on Friday -- Set 252

Spinning Friday tunes since 2010...

For anyone who wants to join in, simply choose five pieces of music and post them for other bloggers to enjoy. Then check out the set posted by the other 5 on Friday blogger -- you can sign in over at Golch Central's Rambling Stuff.

By this time next week, we'll be kicking the wrapping paper out of the way and cozying in to enjoy Boxing Day.

So for my final Christmas set of 2014, here are five of my favorite sacred pieces. Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Christmas.
