In the spirit of Christmas, I thought I’d post a list of my favorite Christmas songs. I haven’t written or arranged anything yet because I’ve been out and about with family throughout the past week, although I have had a few random inspirations for some sort of men’s quartet arrangement of O Holy Night. I don’t foresee jumping back into composing until the new year, but maybe at that point I’ll feel like backtracking on the season and trying to work on that haha. I have a couple other projects in mind for the new year too, so I’m excited to get started. For now though, I’ll just have to stick to the listening. Here are a few of my favorite Christmas songs.
The Coventry Carol
In the Bleak Midwinter
Ding Dong Merrily on High
O Holy Night
Hahahaha all jokes aside, I really love this song. It’s so beautiful. I would also like to take some time to express my disdain for Joy to the World, unless it’s a really cool arrangement. It’s just so overdone and I’m frankly just kind of tired of it. Anyway, Merry Christmas all! I hope your days were wonderful and you were able to enjoy time with your families.
Also, happy fifth day of Hanukkah to all you Jewish folk. Here’s something for you.
