Listen carefully, sleeper's breathing of birds can hear.

Christmas Eve is spent in the cabin with my dog ​​Pepe.
Shadow of the trees are painting black stripes on the ground. 

Listen carefully, sleeper's breathing of birds can hear. 
Although I want to see a falling star, evening would be snow.
But, snow is like the falling stars will shine in the darkness.

A few days after, passing inexorably this year.
I think the people who suffer in the cold by poverty and unhappiness,
in the town decorated with colorful lights and Christmas tree.

And, I suffer myself can only pray for them. 

Please listen to Giovanni Battista Pergolesi.
Katia Ricciarelli's soprano of Bel Canto singing
Soft sound to squeezed out in a whisper is beautiful and graceful.
I do not know more than this graceful singing

Katia Ricciarelli and Lucia Valentini 

sing the final movement of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. 1979. 
Conductor: Claudio Abbado.

Stabat Mater "Our Lady of Sorrows" is one of the chant 
of the Catholic Church in the 13th century.
Is one of the very poignant poetry of the Middle Ages.
When Jesus Christ was the son crucifixion
singing the sorrow experienced by the mother Maria.

Since the Middle Agesmany composers of Western music

has put a song in this poem.
PalestrinaVivaldi, PergolesiHaydnRossini, Dvorak, etc.
