Each year the group Folk Angel puts out a new Christmas CD. I have come to look forward to its release each year. This year’s album is All The Earth Rejoice and it doesn’t disappoint. The two songs that I find myself listening are Away In A Manger (A fun upbeat version with an added chorus) and Friendly Beasts (A tale of the animals adoration of Christ’s birth).
A Choir is an amazing thing to me, the blending of multiple voices into one, all in harmony. A Virtual choir is amazing-er

I really enjoy finding new Christmas songs or updated familiar songs. I am not too familiar with the group “Sidewalk Prophets”, (turns out the lead singer and one band member went to college here in Anderson, IN) but they have a nice sound and hey it is hard to not like a song that begins with Linus from Peanuts reading the Christmas story. This is one of my early favorites for new Christmas songs this year.
Here is the story behind the song
This video has been going around, but it is still worth sharing. The Piano Guys are talented and creative. Here they are playing “Angels We Have Heard on High”
Terrible Tuesday Christmas Music is here. What a flood of Christmas memories and nostalgia “Dominick the Donkey” brings rushing back. Okay, none. That is why it starts off our Terrible Tuesday Christmas music this year. One would have thought that putting a cute animal in a Christmas song would make it a sure fire hit, this one was just a backfire. What are your Terrible Christmas song?
Mondays are going to be a walk down memory lane this December. One of the artists my Dad introduced us to as children was Roy Orbison. To my knowledge he only ever recorded one Christmas song, Pretty Paper.
