The Friday Four, Part 45

It's Christmas time! I love Christmas music, so today I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces with you, with another four to follow next week (yes, it'll be after Christmas, but we can still enjoy beautiful music!).  
Gratuitous picture of our
eclectic Christmas tree.
I think it needs some garland...

First up, a Christmas country/gospel/Southern rock offering from Sawyer Brown: "Hallelujah, He Is Born!"  I just want to dance when I hear this song!


There are hundreds of wonderful arrangements and performances of "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel", but I love this instrumental version by The Piano Guys:


Boys' choirs just sound like Christmas to me.  Here's the King's College Choir with "Good Christian Men, Rejoice!"


Joan Baez's voice is perfect for this haunting Appalachian carol, "I Wonder As I Wonder"

Bonus Christmas song

Muppet Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas movie, one that must be watched (and sung along with) every year.  This happy song always makes me smile: "One More Sleep Til Christmas".

  1. I seriously had One More Sleep Till Christmas going through my head during every step of the 78 km track that I just hiked. It's one of those songs that gets stuck and won't leave. Great minds think alike!
