On the tenth day of Christmas, tradition gave to me:
Ten Christmas albums

Ten Favorite Christmas Albums

Oh, how I love Christmas music! I usually bring it out on Thanksgiving night and listen to it through the New Year. We have way more than 10 Christmas CDs, and these just happen to be the 10 albums that I like best right now. (And yes, this is a household where two professional musicians live, so it's a little on the classical side.)(Okay, a lot on the classical side.)

1. Jenny Oaks Baker: O Holy Night

2. Josh Groban: Noel

3. Carreras / Domingo / Pavarotti: Christmas Favorites from the World's Favorite Tenors

4. Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker (no link...there are a million recordings around of this, and we have three of them anyway!)

5. Glenn Close and Placido Domingo: Repeat the Sounding Joy

6. The Boston Pops Orchestra: Holiday Pops

7. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir (This is their most current album, but I have most all of their Christmas albums, so...we'll just count them all as one.)

8. Harry Connick, Jr.: What A Night! A Christmas Album

9. Kristin Chenoweth: A Lovely Way To Spend Christmas (This one is hands down my girls' favorite--Kristin C. is just so much fun!)

10. Yo-Yo Ma & Friends: Songs of Joy & Peace

  1. I need to get the Josh Groban and the Yo-Yo Ma cd's. Oh and Harry Connick Jr.

    Great list.

  2. I love Josh Groban, too! I am a music girl. I'll have to check these out!

  3. We have some of those cds. I just love the Christmas music at this time.

  4. Great list! I need to get that Kristin Chenoweth album.

  5. I really should invest in more Christmas albums . . . and listen to the ones I do have more!

  6. Great choices. Have you ever tried Pandora.com? You can select an artist you like, and then it finds other songs similar in sound. It has been fun doing the Josh Groban holiday station.

  7. I love Harry Connick Jr. And Josh Groban. And...well, you know how I feel about Christmas music! Great stuff you have there.

  8. Just bought the Celtic Women CD...and I'm going to try that fudge recipe!

  9. I love Josh and Harry, but now you have me interested in Kristin Chenowith's. Thanks!

  10. i LOVE christmas music!
    i've been hearing so much about that kristin chenoweth cd, i definately need to find it.

  11. I saw a great special on TV about the making of Yo-yo's Christmas Cd--I still need to get me a copy of that. I have over 30 Christmas CDs and this presents quite a problem. If I listen to one a day between Thanksgiving evening and Christmas morning (the kids beg me to stop after that point) then that's one CD per day. It's not enough! It's too much work to change CDs all day long so all day long I listen to the one. There's gotta be a better way! I love them all . .

  12. Wait. Glenn Close & Placido Domingo? Is she a singer or is she narrating it?

  13. I lovvvvvve Josh. What a voice. It makes me melt. (Don't tell my hubby:)

  14. I'm so glad you posted this! And I love Yo-Yo Ma! And Harry Connick Jr.'s Christmas just feels so happy.
