"Old Raahe - Christmas Poem" - Video released

This is the tale behind the song as told by our Choir leader Pauli Ylitalo:
Some years ago, I had an envelope left in my mailbox with two books of poetry inside. The sender, Aune Juola from Piehinki, said in her message that the poems were written by her brother Otto Pulkkinen, who lives in southern Finland. Aune hoped that I would compose a song from one of the poems. She wanted to cheer up her seriously ill brother with the song. It was easy to fulfil such a request. I composed the song; "Christmas poem", which beautifully describes the arrival of the festive atmosphere of Christmas in the city and in the minds of its inhabitants.
