Christmas Songs for Your Holiday Playlist
The Ultimate Holiday Playlist
If you're like me, once the holiday season starts to roll around, there are few better ways to get into the spirit than to dig out you Christmas CDs and immerse yourself in your favorite carols. They never get old, because unlike popular songs on the radio, they are not over-played all year long. Just as I do for other special events, I like to put together playlists for my i-Pod that are specially designed for the holiday season. Whether you enjoy festive, playful songs or more spiritually rich songs with orchestral appeal, there is something on this list for everyone who truly loves the holidays and is moved by the spirit of the season.
A few of my favorites could not be found on youtube, but I would be remiss if I didn't include them for you. Check them out in i-Tunes. They are:
- Greensleeves by Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chant Choir
- Coventry Carol by the American Boychoir
- Ding Dong! Merrily on High by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields
- Gloria in Excelsis Deo by Monteverdi Choir and John Eliot Gardener
Enjoy, and have a blessed holiday!
