Too early for Christmas music? In my defense, I waited not only until after Thanksgiving, but four whole days after. As a musician, I start rehearsing holiday tunes in early October. I worked on an arrangement of “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” on and off all year. I feel I’ve shown great restraint.
I love singing harmonies. Christmas music and harmonies go together like Weihnachtsplätzchen and Glühwein. Am I right? This music was made for people like me.
I recorded the four-part harmonies to these songs for a group I sing with every season. (I’ll tell you more about that next week.) I’d love to share recordings of “White Christmas” or “What Are You Doing New Years Eve” but they’re not public domain. So, enjoy these traditional carols and fol-la-la-la-la-low me to the most wonderful time of the year.

When do you start listening to Christmas music?
My contemporary favorite is “White Christmas.” My traditional favorite is “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.”
What’s your favorite?
