I'm a fan of Frank Sinatra in general. I mostly listen to him. Something like: Mistletoe And Holly, Strangers in the night, Jingle Bells, Let It Snow, White Christmas well and much more:)

Ryba Christmas Mass

Thank you to CnC Bartok. This is an outstanding performance of Ryba's Christmas Mass...

Of course, picking a favored recording is somewhat like being asked to pick you favorite child. There is no "best" when they are special to you.

I suspect the Austro-Germans and the English have inappropriately dominated Christmas music, just like they try to dominate everything else and there is a lot of outstanding Eastern European Christmas Music out there. I could be wrong.

If this piece doesn't say "Merry Christmas", what does?
