Merry Christmas

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.
