Our Favorite Christmas CD's, Page 1
Billboard Greatest Christmas
This one's a great addition to any collection, since it contains so many
classics. From Bing Crosby's White Christmas, and Silent Night,
Gene Autry's Rudolph, Nat "King" Cole's The Christmas Song, and
others, this CD can really take you back to Christmas's of old. For me,
it's being 8 years old, by the turntable with Mom & Dad's Firestone
Christmas Classics LP's... Ah, if they only included the scratches...
Billboard Greatest Christmas
Contrary to what the title implies, this CD contains mostly music from the
late 50's and early 60's, with the notable exception of Elmo 'N Patsy's quirky
classic Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer from 1983. With entries
by Harry Belafonte, Bobby Helms, Elvis Presley, The Drifters, and others, you'll
find this CD ads some nostalgia to your Christmas season.
Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and Singers: Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle
Canadian Brass: The Christmas Album
A great CD with a combination of high-energy gospel choruses (O Come Emmanuel)
and soulful slower songs (Happy Birthday Jesus). This CD will add
some Christian pizzazz to your CD collection.
I've always loved the Canadian Brass, and this assortment of Christmas
music is excellent. The group also has a newer CD called The
Christmas Experiment, which I have not yet heard, but I bet it's good.
Carpenters: Christmas Portrait
I've always loved this collection-- Something about it just says
"Christmas" to me. Karen's vocals blend with great orchestration
which is just 70's enough to be timeless.
Curtis Chapman: Music of Christmas
This one's a great collection from one of Contemporary Christian music's best
known artists. Contains a few nice originals, as well as excellent
renditions of some classics.
Connick, Jr.: When My Heart Finds Christmas
I like some tracks on this CD better than others. What's good: What
Are You Doing New Year's Eve?, Ave Maria, Sleigh Ride.
What's less good: Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, (It Must've Been Ol')
Santa Claus. Still a good addition to your collection.
Duncan: Christmas Is Jesus
I discovered this CD by "marrying into" it, and it's become a new
favorite of mine. Bryan's vocals make both the classics and originals into
highlights. Sure to become one of your favorites, too..
A Musical Celebration of the Life of Christ
This one's worth having in your collection simply based on the collection of
Christian artists: Michael W. Smith, Point of Grace, Sandi Patty, Twila
Paris, BeBe Winans, Clay Crosse, and many others are involved in this musical in
the tradition of the Messiah but entirely new. I think you'll like
Him: Christmas the Season of Love
Half the songs on this CD are traditional carols of the season, but with fresh
new arrangements. The other half is great new songs. Put the two together
for an excellent addition to your collection. Especially good are Strange
Way to Save the World and Do You Hear What I Hear.
Fischer: Tapestry of Christmas
Even though this CD is by my brother and therefore I'm probably somewhat biased,
I think you'll find the arrangements of traditional and original carols to be
extremely good, and do wonders to get you in the Christmas mood. This
one's not available through Amazon, but if you click the link above, you can
listen to several of the tracks, and find out how to purchase it for
Fischer: Christmas At Home
Mike's new 2008 Christmas release. This one features more original
compositions, as well as fresh arrangements of traditional Christmas
favorites. This time Mike's joined by vocalist Angie Gislason on some of
G: Miracles: The Holiday Album
Some accuse Kenny G of grossly sappy, overly sentimental schmaltz, but isn't
that what Christmas music is all about <grin> ? For what it's worth,
I like this CD. Curl up by the fire with this CD on the player, and you'll
be in the Christmas mood in no time.
