Top Eleven Christmas Albums

  1. Christopher Parkening Plays Vivaldi which also has a stunning new music piece by Peter Warlock and ends with some Praetorius.
  2. A noteworthyNoteworthy Christmas Sung by Canadian Choirs
  3. Noel Chez Nous / Christmas From Home Manitoba Artists, skip  the Saxology number, truly awful.
  4. Oh, Good Grief!  by Vince Guaraldi  (The Peanuts Christmas music )by Vince Guaraldi.
  5. Yo Yo Gualardi_4
  6. Swinging Christmas Ella Fitzgerald
  7. Carol Album 1 and Carol Album 2 by the Taverner Consort Choir and Players directed by Andrew Parrot, in the EMI Classics series.
  8. The CBC has a lovely cd in its SM 5000 series featuring the Toronto Children’s Choir called On the Road to Bethlehem
  9. Have yourself a Jazzy Little Christmas a Verve collection
  10. Christmas Island by Leon Redbone
  11. And more recently I’ve found Pink Martini’s Joy to the World a compromise before people reach for Mannheim Steamroller. It makes a nod to diversity, but I could have done without the worst version of Auld Lang Syne I’ve ever heard.
