musical Advent calendar posted on the Omniscient Mussel's website.
"Miss Mussel" is free-lance classical music writer Marcia Adair, and each day during advent she picks a different classical (mostly) performance and work. (Extra points if you know what opera the Omniscient Mussel appears in)
Rather than opening a tab on a paper calendar, you just click the "play" button and enjoy. The selections have always ranged from the familiar to the obscure, and I look forward to seeing -- and listening to -- each day's post.
This year the calendar duties have been taken over by "Frere Mussel," a professional singer living in Germany. The selections are different, but still top-notch.
If you're looking for something more than the same old same old musically, I highly recommend the Omniscient Mussel's Advent Calendar.
