Christmas Music


Music helps set the mood for the holidays. Here are some Christmas albums that I highly recommend and have in my personal collection.

Ray Boltz - Gary Chapman - Neil Diamond
Amy Grant - Michael W. Smith - Mannheim Steamroller

Ray Boltz

A Christmas Album
An excellent recording from one of the greats in Contemporary Christian music. My favorite on this album is entitled The Gift.


Gary Chapman

This Gift
Includes such hits as Rudolph the Red-Rosed Reindeer, O Holy Night, as well as others like the title song and Mary Did You Know.


Neil Diamond

The Christmas Album
From one of the greats comes this album and the next. O Come O Come Emmanuel/We Three Kings of Orient Are, Morning Has Broken, and You Make it Feel Like Christmas are some of the highlights on this volume.

The Christmas Album, Vol. 2
Mary's Little Boy Child, Away in a Manger, Angels We Have Heard on High and The First Noel are just some of the ensemble for this recording.


Amy Grant

A Christmas Album
An awesome album including a unique recording of the traditional words of O Little Town of Bethlehem called Little Town - one of my very favorite Christmas songs. Tennessee Christmas, Emmanual and Love Has Come are some other highlights.

Home for Christmas
This recording is just as great as her first one. Some of my favorites include Joy to the World/For Unto Us a Child is Born, Breath of Heaven, Grown Up Christmas List, The Night Before Christmas and Emmanuel God With Us.

A Christmas to Remember
Amy Grant's latest Christmas recording. It is good, with some hightlights being the title song, A Christmas to Remember, Christmas Lullaby and her rendition of Michael W. Smith's Agnus Dei. I do have to admit that I like her first two albums better, though.


Michael W. Smith

Christmas
This marks the first Christmas album from Michael W. Smith, a phenomenal musician in the Contemporary Christian world. As with all of his work, I can't pick just one or two favorites - the whole album is awesome!

Christmastime
More from one of my favorite musical artists. Again, this recording is just as fantastic as his first - one of the highlights is definitely the original title song, Christmastime. Welcome to Our World is another favorite of mine. In my opinion this recording is a worthy addition to any Christmas music collection.


Mannheim Steamroller

Christmas Collection [Boxed Set]
Purchase all four of this instrumental group's Christmas recordings together, or separately below. These albums/CDs contain some of today's modern Christmas classics. One of which I especially find myself humming throughout the year!

A Fresh Aire Christmas

Christmas in the Aire

Christmas Extraordinaire








Peace in Christ,
