Enjoy this beautiful rendition of ‘Silent Night’ by Bella’s Lasses – a choir from Shetland’s past.

Please note our offices close today at 2pm and will re-open on Wednesday at 10.30am.

The Shetland Times Bookshop is open until 5pm tonight for that last-minute book, gift or token.

Hi Lasses, Iris had some of our songs transferred to 'wave format' from an original old tape… 'Silent Night' is a particular favourite of mine, so just thought I would let you all have a listen… June.

    Nice to hear Silent Night – especially on the 200th “Birthday” of “Stille Nacht” 🙂

    All the best for a safe Christmas and a good 2019

    There’s a lot more chance of the wee Trow’s being hard at it than Christmas having any reality about it.

    A thing of beauty and always a pleasure to behold

    This year, yet again, I didn’t get a Christmas (video). Not only that but Santa never stopped by, even though the pillow cover was out to collect the toys in.

    Music, in all its forms, is beautiful to listen too. It is what shapes and carves the society we live in. Long may the sound of music and singing last and last.

    Lovely. Would love to know everyone’s names. One or two I can remember.
