OHN is my favorite carol, and I've probably got about 20 versions of it. Suprisingly, my favorite one is by John Tesh called "The Choirs of Christmas." The second verse has some unique key changes that make it interesting.

Another CD I've been listening to is "Christmas Sky" by Jordan Rudess (the keyboard player for Dream Theater). I think he sets the record for most notes played on a CD -- his embellishmnets on every bar are almost too much. Overall very nice though.

The Charlie Brown Christmas CD is my absolute favorite.

In my classroom, I have a Kenny G holiday cd playing in the background while my students finish their projects. Very easy to work to.

Charlie Brown Christmas and Barbra Streisand's Christmas CD for me. I am also listening to a nice compilation CD called Home for the Holidays. It contains two of my favorite Christmas songs -- I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Judy Garland.

My two favs today are "Christmas Is The Time To Say I Love You" and Leon Redbone and whoever that chick is in the movie "Elf" singing "It's Cold Outside". Good stuff.

I'll add my usual recommendation for Judy Collins Christmas at the Biltmore Estate - now finally available on DVD (as well as CD and VHS)! Excellent versions of Good King Wenceslas (only on the DVD and VHS), Let it Snow, What Child is This, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and quite a few others.

I also listen to an old Time Life 2 CD set of assorted Christmas songs. They've reissued them with different songs (or different versions of the same ones).

And of course there are the Bob Rivers Christmas CDs.

Any of the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas CD's. :emoji_thumbsup: Their rendition of Silent Night--especially at the end of the song--always leaves you teary-eyed. And Chip Davis' original instrumental "Traditions of Christmas" from A Fresh Aire Christmas captures the feel of Christmas morning better than any thing else I've ever heard. :emoji_thumbsup:

The only Christmas album you need...

The Vandals - Oi! To The World

:laugh: :laugh: That's one of the funniest albums I've ever heard in my entire life. It is FAR from being a family-friendly Christmas album.

Harry Connick Jr. When My Heart Finds Christmas. (Just got his new one Harry For the Holidays but haven't listened to it yet.)

Aaron Neville's Soulful Christmas.

And Charlie Brown is mandatory. ;)
