Our Favorite Christmas CD's, Page 1

Billboard Greatest Christmas Hits: 1935-1954
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 Hits: 1955-Present
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.

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and Singers:  Christmas at the Brooklyn Tabernacle
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.

The Canadian Brass:  The Christmas Album
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.

The 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.

Steven 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.

Harry 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.

Bryan 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..  

Emmanuel-- 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 this one.

4 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.  

Michael 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 yourself.  Enjoy!

 

Michael 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 the tracks.

Kenny 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.
