My Favorite Christmas Music!

While I know Thanksgiving has not even come, we’ve started listening to Christmas music! I hold off on decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but I love Christmas music and just can’t wait!

We are very conservative in our music choices, so the list below reflects that. Even on this list there might be a few songs within a CD I normally skip.

The Heart of Christmas Classical Guitar

 

The Heart of Christmas Classical Guitar – I found this at the library and we have all been enjoying how peaceful and beautiful it is! This CD is a good one to play during school time, and will help cheer the children up during unpleasant subjects. Don’t ask me how I know. πŸ˜‰

Heavenly Christmas Music by Jackie Evancho. I love this Christmas Album!

 

Heavenly Christmas by Jackie Evancho – I purchased this CD last year and love it! Her voice is amazing for being so young. I’ve shipped many packages for Deborah & Co. during the holidays while I listen to this for some holiday cheer. πŸ™‚

Tidings of Joy by the John Marshall Family

Tidings of Joy by the John Marshall Family – I listened to this for many years before getting married, so whenever I hear it I remember baking days in the kitchen with my mom and decorating our house. It brings back such good memories! This family has an amazing talent of blending their voices and singing for the Lord!

The Piano Guys A Family Christmas

 

A Family Christmas by the Piano Guys – This is one where I don’t like every song on the CD, and I can’t handle it on during the school time. πŸ™‚ I really enjoy the talent of the Piano Guys, but when I have 5 other children making noise this CD is just too much. I enjoy listening to it at night while I’m blogging, or in the van with the children.

O Come Emmanuel

O Come Emmanuel by David Nevue – This is another nice quiet Christmas album that is full of solo piano music. Β This music is turned on often during school days. I really like all the music I have from David Nevue – very soothing for an active household!

Noel by Josh Groan

 

Noel by Josh Groan – I skip a few songs on this album, but we enjoy most of them. Josh Groban has a beautiful voice!

Bing Crosby I Wish You  A Merry Christmas

 

I Wish You A Merry ChristmasΒ by Bing Crosby – I found this at the library and we have had some fun family time listening to it. We don’t do anything with Santa Claus and it is hard to find a good classic album without a lot of Santa Claus music included. This was a nice change from other CD’s I’ve tried, and we’re having fun singing along.

These are some of my favorite Christmas albums, I would love to know what your family enjoys at Christmas time!

8 Comments on My Favorite Christmas Music!

  1. We have many of the Marshall Family CDs, including the Christmas one. I actually know the family personally. πŸ˜‰
    Looks like a great list! I will see if I can find some of these titles at a good price, since sadly our libraries here do not carry CDs. πŸ™

  2. Caroline,
    I just got off of the phone with Joanna Marshall. I told her about your post today and she was excited to know that you liked their CD. I sent the post over for her to see!! You made me want to buy the CD now!! They are beautiful singers and people…….

  3. Our choir will be making a CD of Christmas music (but the recording dates aren’t until January, so it’s really supposed to hit stores next year)…but we sing Renaissance Gregorian Chant and Polyphony. O Magnum Mysterium (O Great Mystery) by Victoria is one of my favorites.

  4. My go to Christmas album is Casting Crowns’ Peace on Earth, our whole family adores ‘I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day’.

  5. There are several on your list I had not seen before; I look forward to checking them out from our library, particularly the album David Nevue, as we very much enjoy piano Christmas songs. For me, the season doesn’t truly start until we listen to Handel’s Messiah, the New Young Messiah, and Amy Grant’s Tennessee Christmas straight through πŸ™‚

  6. We discovered David Nevue through Pandora. My daughters, 16 and 12, both play piano. He offers sheet music on his website and we love his arrangements. My oldest daughter is playing his, Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus arrangement right now. He has such a melodic quality to his songs.
