Top Christmas Songs

Earlier this year, ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) released its list of the most “performed” Christmas songs of the decade. The winner was the Eurythmics version of “Winter Wonderland”.

As for my favourite Christmas song, it’s hard to decide. I’d probably say that the best song (regardless of which artist is performing) is “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”. As for the best version, it’s a toss–up between the Aselin Debison version of “The Gift” and the Natalie Merchant version of “Children, Go Where I Send Thee”.

  1. Hark the herald is a great christmas song. My favorites right now are O Holy Night and Ave Maria. I’m learning to sing Ave Maria with my partner, we still need a lot of polish, but it is starting sound really good. 🙂

  2. Excellent choices, Arbourist. Perhaps someday you and your partner will be on Youtube singing, right?

  3. Perhaps. Although she has a much better chance than I. She has a positively angelic voice and a whack of voice training to back her up.

    I’ll see what I can do about a youtube vid though, for sherry and giggles at least. 🙂 We have to go over the score and put in all the picky bits as we want to be ready for January when our choir starts up again. We’ll give you a dingle when we need back up vocals :>

  4. Good Luck, you two. If there really will be a Youtube video, you know in advance what the content of an as yet unwritten post here will be….
