A few of the classics alongside some hidden gems.
Well, now that the shopping is done, you’ve got a full night of present wrapping ahead of you and Aleteia is here to soothe your grated ears with a playlist of some truly wonderful Christmas hymns and carols. We’ve assembled an hour’s worth of some of our favorites, from timeless classics, like The Carpenters’ “Silent Night,” to some that may have been overlooked, such as The Roches’ “We Three Kings.”
Nat King Cole’s “Joy to the World” is as timely as Burl Ives’ “Holly Jolly Christmas.” Cole was one of the most prominent and influential musicians of his time and recorded over 100 songs that became hits on the pop charts. His compositions may not receive much radio play these days, but each year we are reminded of his velvet-smooth voice at Christmastime.
