As Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year instead of a track of the week I’ve put together a Crotchety Christmas Playlist on Spotify. In the process I discovered several rather good Christmas albums. I recommend the playlist to accompany your festive turkey and afterwards I think you’ll find these yuletide collections will go down rather well:
- Pentatonix, A Pentatonix Christmas
- Joan Baez, Noel
- Annie Lennox, A Christmas Cornucopia
- Keith Emerson, The Christmas Album
- Steeleye Span, Winter
With the exception of Pentatonix those artists are probably familiar to followers of this blog so I won’t bore you by saying anything about them. Pentatonix are a five-piece a cappella group based in Arlington, Texas. They won NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2011 and have recorded several albums since. A Pentatonix Christmas is their latest offering; it was released in October 2016. And very good it is, too.
All that remains is for me to wish you all a very merry Christmas and may all your listening be pleasurable.
