Merry Christmas Music



Since Friday is the unofficial start of listening to Christmas music,
I decided to share some of my all time favorite collections...
 
Oh Come All Ye Faithful
with the King's College Boys Choir
I've been listening to this amazingly beautiful collection of
Christmas carols sung by the King's College Boys Choir of Cambridge, England
since I was in middle school.
It is one of my very favorite playlists, and my favorite carol is
"In The Bleak Midwinter"
Go here to hear some selections.
 
In The Christmas Mood
with The Glen Miller Orchestra
I love Big Band music, especially Glen Miller,
and this is all the traditional Christmas music with some "swing!"
My favorite is "Sleigh Ride"
Go here to hear some selections from this playlist.
 
Joy: A Holiday Collection
by Jewel
I purchased this playlist at the recommendation of a friend,
and I was not disappointed.
She puts her own twist on some of the traditional carols,
and my favorite is her "Ava Maria".
You can listen to some selections on iTunes by searching "Jewel Christmas"
 
Christmas With Conniff
by The Ray Conniff Singers
This is a blast from my past....
We listened to this record album when I was a little girl,
and it still remains one of my favorites!
Favorite on this playlist is "Silver Bells"
Listen to some selections here
 
Ultra-Lounge Christmas Cocktails Part One
I love this playlist....the music is a combination of the music
you would hear while shopping at Old Navy during the holiday season,
and the music you would hear at a Christmas cocktail party in the 1960's.
Very fun and very non-traditional in a traditional way....does that even make sense?
Favorite song on this playlist is "Christmas Kisses"
Listen to some selections here
Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas
with Ella Fitzgerald
This is another jazzy take on the traditional Christmas songs.
My favorite on this playlist is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"
Listen to some selections here
A Merry Christmas
with Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
This is another oldie but goodie!
My favorite selection is "Christmas in Killarney"
which was my paternal grandmother's favorite as well.
Here are some sample selections.
December
 by George Winston
This is a beautiful collection of piano music and captures
the essence of the season.
My favorite is his rendition of "The Holly And The Ivy"
To hear some selections, visit iTunes.
 
That should be a little something for everyone....
quite a mix of genres!
What Christmas music is your favorite?

I love it all and have been waiting for one of our local radio stations to start playing it 24/7. Think my favorite is Bing Crosby though...

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

I love George Winston's "December"! I can remember the first time my mother played that cd while we decorated our tree.
