Christmas Music

One of my favorite Christmas albums is “Noel” by Josh Groban. If you weren’t among the millions who bought “Noel” last year, I heartily recommend it for your holiday listening this year. Groban’s version of “Ave Maria” alone is worth the price of the CD. He mixes traditional carols (Angels We Have Heard on High, The First Noel, What Child Is This) with popular holiday chestnuts including “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “The Christmas Song.” The only drawback: this collection Groban’s version of “O Holy Night,” which is one of my favorites (I have a whole collection of Christian and pop artists’ versions of “O Holy Nioght,” but that’s a story for another post …).
