My All Time Favorite Christmas Albums

Updated on September 11, 2015

Looking for great music this Christmas season?...

...then you have come to the right place! I know great artists when I see one and sometimes they do great Christmas albums. So here's a list of my current favorite Christmas albums. Please enjoy and comment...I'd be interested to also know what your favorites are. Please leave me a question or comment and I'll try to get back to you!

#1 - Jackie Evancho

If you have not had the opportunity to hear a true angel then you need to buy Jackie Evancho's Oh Holy Night.  This CD is very reasonably priced, but only contains 4 tracks.  It also comes with a DVD of some of her performances from America's Got Talent.

Trust me, you will not be disappointed.  As a matter of fact you might be surprised how mature and lovely her voice is.  You will be saying, "Wow, I can't believe that voice is coming out of a 10-year-old girl."


#2 - Billy Gilman

This album is not brand new but is a must have Christmas album.  Billy Gilman's arrangements of popular tunes like O Holy Night, Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, and more are just wonderful.  This is probably my favorite Christmas album.  It also has a really fun duet of Sleigh Ride with Charlotte Church.

Some of the other tracks are not as familiar but really fun like Warm and Fuzzy.  That particular one is one of my favorites.

#3 - Josh Groban

If you are a Josh Groban fan than this is definitely the album for you!  You will not be disappointment because Josh delivers in this CD.  (Titled Noel)  It's very great quality and his voice just carries well and will get you in the spirit of the season.  Other guests artists on the CD include Andy McKee, Brian McKnight, Faith Hill, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

#4 - David Archuleta

David Archuleta is truly a talent and you will find his voice soothing and very enjoyable. These arrangements in Christmas from the Heart will have you feeling good real quick. If you enjoy pop music, then this album is for you. This is the only CD on this list that I do not own yet, but I have heard enough to know that I want the album and that it's great. If you want a little more than just a sample you can go to www.playlist.com and www.youtube.com to listen to entire tracks from the album for free! (All you have to do is type David Archuleta Christmas in the search box or his name and then the song you want to listen to.)

***The youtube the account by archie4life96 has all of the songs from the album.

#5 - Jon Secada

Okay!  Now, I have to admit that this album title Christmas Fiesta is not for everyone.  However, if you are looking for something with a little bit of Spanish flare then this is the album for you.  The tracks are very upbeat and use lots of rhythmic drums and other effects that are very popular in Spanish music.  I really don't think that the arrangements are all that great, and I also think it could have done a better job of showcasing Jon's vocal range.  The whole album is just a "for fun" album that has a little bit of sugar, spice, and everything nice!

Thank you!!!

I want to thank you for looking over my list of favorite Christmas albums. I hope that I have given you some great ideas. Feel free to purchase these through my links and I will feel even more thankful.

Now, one last thing...if you are looking for some good choral music for Christmas you should definately search under the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. They are one of the world's best and they have a LARGE selection of not only Christmas but other albums as well that you will enjoy immensely. Many of the CDs also feature the famous Tabernacle Organ, Orchestra at Temple Square, and guest artists.

Enjoy and Happy Christmas!
