What Child is This?

The other day, Daniel bought us Sarah McLachlan's Christmas album, Wintersong, and we both think that her rendition of Greensleeves (What Child is This?) is one of the prettiest we have heard. I hope you'll enjoy it as well.

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my latest painting. It feels so good to make art again. I hope I'll have something else to show you soon!


  1. Hi Silke! I love Sarah's music! Have been a fan for years! She has such a unique unmistakable voice. I have never heard this rendition. Thanks for sharing! Its beautiful! :)

  2. That is a lovely rendition of a beautiful song. I've always liked Sarah McLachlan. Just looked at your profile and realized you'll soon be coming up to the 2-year anniversary of your foray into the art world. It's been an amazing journey, hasn't it? I wonder what 2011 will bring -- many new adventures for you, I'm sure.

  3. I've been playing Wintersong for a couple of years now,Silke - I adore it! A funny story: I first heard Sarah singing 'Silent Night' in a branch of Starbucks in Central London. So loved her voice. Thought itwas maybe on one of Starbucks own CD's, the ones they sell instore. Paul & I searched for a LONG time, in every Starbucks we came across - to no avail. So in the end I called their head office here in the UK - they were so wonderful! Said that it wasn't on one of their albums. Took my number & called me back to suggest that it may be Sarah McLachlan! So that's how I found this CD, 3 years ago...& I adore it! Wintersong & Silent Night are my favourites, but the whole album is wonderful! Wishing you, Daniel & your furbabies every happiness for Christmas & 2011 xoxo Rachel

  4. Thanks for sharing SIlke...very pretty!

  5. Great choice, Silke! Sarah's voice is so beautiful (we've been fortunate to see her live three times). Happy Holidays! Theresa

  6. Wonderful Silke..I had never heard Sarah's version before..beautiful! a much loved song by so many......I love both lyrics-versions..what child is this, and greensleeves..but my heart is so drawn to the Greensleeves version/myths/ I did a recording of it..close to my heart. It was fun!

    Thanks for this magical sparkle to my night!

    Have a wonderful magical holiday, and beautiful new year filled with many sparkles and blessings to you and your loved ones!
    It has been lovely meeting you this year and getting to know a kindred spirit!

  8. Ahh, I love Sarah McLachlan, she always makes me cry. Und liebe Silke, ich hoffe, das Päckchen ist sicher bei der jungen Dame angekommen. Sollte irgendetwas mit dem Armband sein oder es ihr nicht gefallen, bitte melden. Ich helfe dann gerne! Dir und Daniel von ganzem Herzen ein frohes und gesegnetes Weihnachtsfest und ein gesundes, glücklcihes und vor allem kreatives neues Jahr! Hugs Stefanie
