I listen to almost nothing but Christmas music every December, but my tastes are pretty simple: the standards (Frank, Dean, Nat, Bing, and Burl), classic soul (Motown and Stax collections), a few personal favorites (Sufjan, Bruce Cockburn, and Kate Bush), kid's music (especially Sesame Street), and the big one, Vince Guaraldi.

My always-evolving playlist is at Spotify. I turn it on the minute I get home from work and listen to it until my older daughter goes to sleep.

I have a CD of the monks of Weston Priory doing their own music. Marvelous.

To be opened with Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby", since an excellent anthology was released last month. santa.gif

What is this Kate Bush Christmas music that you speak of?!

She released an album called 50 Words for Snow last year. A great album.

That's what I suspected. I've firmly put that album into the 'winter' mix rather than Cmas so that I have something to look forward to after the New Year. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything else!

I think it's still close enough to Christmas to share.

My Christmas playlist is never complete without La Nativite du Seigneur by Olivier Messiaen. Here's the ninth and final movement, "Dieu parmi nous"
