My phone follows me everywhere to play Christmas carols...at the small table where I bundle my Etsy orders, at the large table set up just for present wrapping, and always in the kitchen for baking time. I organize my extensive collection into multiple Christmas playlists, so I can play whatever fits my mood at the time. And every year, I try to add a few new ones.
If you're looking for some new tunes this Christmas, here are the newest ones on my playlists. My musical taste is eclectic, so there's a bit of everything. You can purchase them on iTunes, or take a listen on some of the links I've provided. Happy listening!
Straight No Chaser's - "Nutcracker"
(Must confess this is my favorite new-to-me Christmas song this year.
Has me chuckling every time I listen! Warning: one objectionable phrase.)
Mariah Carey's - "All I Want for Christmas Is You"
English Renaissance & Michael Stoddart's - "Gloria In Excelsis Deo"
(Positively transporting! I can just imagine this must've been how the angels sang to the awestruck shepherds the night of Christ's birth.)
Magdalen College Choir, Oxford & Bill Ives - "Wassail Song"
The Bird and The Bee - "Carol of the Bells"
(Fun, slightly discordant, hip version...like you might hear playing in Starbucks.)
Michael Buble's - "Cold December Night"
