Purty Christmas Music – Enjoy!

I’m not a Christian, but I LOVE Christmas music. So, as my holiday gift to you, here are some of my favorites:

O Holy Night“, sung by Dame Joan Sutherland (yes, that is a high “D” at the end! You go girl!)

“Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah, conducted by Robert Shaw

Riu Riu Chiu“, Christmas Carol, performed by Capella Gloriana

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear,” performed by Ella Fitzgerald

and of course:

White Christmas,” performed by Bing Crosby (and written by nice Jewish boy Irving Berlin)

May your days be merry and bright!

  1. I’m nominally Christian still, but because of personal circumstances, Christmas would be a major source of depression if I let it. I figure it’s a good excuse for work parties and days off, and to dress a little more colorfully than otherwise. I also appreciate is the music. Thanks for sharing.

    Wish I could magically send you the two custom CDs I compiled, a mix of novelty songs, secular tunes and religious carols — everthing from the Dr. Demento cut “I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa Claus” to Gladys Knight & the Pips doing “Silent Night.” Maybe for next year I can get your meat space address and send them.

    Did what holiday family visits I have last Sunday, so I’m by myself this Christmas Day, trying to stay warm and snug in the weird Michigan winter weather. I got calls today and yesterday, and have another to make, so I’ll share some holiday greetings.

    A day of peace and joy to you and all who lurk here, whatever holidays you may celebrate.
