As the holiday season comes around, much to the dismay of my husband, I am that person who starts listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween. I must admit this is my favorite time of year. I love the lights, wassail, cinnamon pinecones, my living room lit by the glow of a Christmas tree, and especially the music. So I thought that I would share my five favorite Christmas songs / albums and I hope that I can help you find some new favorites to spice up your Christmas Season.
HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
by Celtic Women
This album is a lyrical arrangement of some good Christmas Classics.
THAT’S CHRISTMAS TO ME
I love this whole album but if you want something extra special, “Mary Did You Know” is amazing. Keep your eyes peeled for their new Christmas album which is also good.
A CHRISTMAS TOGETHER
by John Denver and the Muppets
I love this entire album but I will admit I pretty consistently have “Christmas is Coming” stuck in my head. There is nothing like listening to Miss Piggy sing Christmas songs.
by Josh Groban
I really like this CD full of beautifully arranged classics. My particular favorite is the duet he does with Faith Hill “The First Noel”.
by Sarah McLachlan
I personally love the song Wintersong out of this assortment. Sarah McLachlan has a beautiful voice and her arrangements are very original and I like the changes she makes to the music.
