I may or may not have mentioned that I have one of the most awesome collections of Christmas music ever. If not, then I do have one of the most awesome collections of Christmas music ever.
Although I prefer the older Christmas music, I still occasionally pick up new recordings by newer artists from time to time.
Here’s a list of some of my most recent acquisitions that I think are pretty darn good:
1) Sting – If On a Winter’s Night
2) Barbra Streisand- A Christmas Album
3) Johnny Mathis- Merry Christmas
4) Pentatonix- That’s Christmas to Me
5) Bing Crosby- The Voice of Christmas: The Complete Decca Christmas Recordings
6) Richard Marx- Christmas Spirit
7) Mahalia Jackson – Mahalia Sings Songs of Christmas
8) Shawn Colvin- Holiday Songs and Lullabies
9) Mary Chapin Carpenter- Come Darkness Come Light: Twelve Songs of Christmas
10) Barry Manilow- In the Swing of Christmas
That’s not a definitive list of all my new favorites. First of all, I don’t have that kind of time to list them all. Second, I don’t want to come across as the world’s biggest nerd. But that is a sampling of what I’m listening to these days.
To me, it’s not really the Christmas season without Christmas music. So I hope this will help you add to your enjoyment of the season of celebrating Christ’s birth.
