    The Watersons - Sound Sound Your Instruments of Joy





    The abrasive Yorkshire harmonies are right up my street.

    And the lyrics seem to encapsulate the wonder of Christmas -

    'Surprising scenes - stupendous love!'

    Here is a great collection of cantatas by JS Bach and my favorite Christmas album by folksinger Sondre Brattland.

    After I've been here for a year I'll ask the administrator to change my name from Frank Freaking Sinatra to Elvis Freaking Presley.

    If you take away one thing from my post, it's that Brian Setzer knows how to do Christmas music right. Some evidence is in the video above.

    If you like that and some more traditional carols done by country and pop artists, then my playlist link is below.

    I don't usually listen to much Christmas or religious music. However, the song below is The Greatest Christmas Carol That You Don't Know But Should:

    Written by John Boda:

    "He who makes songs without feeling spoils both his words and his music. " ~ Guillaume de Machaut

    "It is insulting to address anyone in a language which they do not understand." ~ Benjamin Britten

    Christmas music gets no better than this:

    If it is art, it is not for all, and if it is for all, it is not art. Arnold Schoenberg

    This song appeared in the 1964 stop motion animated Christmas special "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and was written by Johnny Marks. While not a "Christmas" song in the tradition meaning of the word it has such a lovely sentiment that it is worth sharing -



    "There's always tomorrow for dreams to come true
    Believe in your dreams come what may...

    We all pretend the rainbow has an end and
    you'll be there someday my friend."
