The Joy of Holiday Music

The fire is crackling in the fire place as the soft light of candles casts flickering shadows on the walls, while the air is heavy with the comforting scent of gingerbread. Outside, big snowflakes gently fall from the sky, blanketing the landscape with a fluffy white cover. A majestic tree is waiting to be decorated with glittering heirloom ornaments and strings of bright lights. The world holds its breath in anticipation of the joy to come, as magical as the very first Christmas. And what better way to celebrate the season than with music!

Let our selection of festive songs put you in the spirit. Choose from a wide array of fascinating artists and genres, from traditional favorites to beloved carols and contemporary pieces. Feel uplifted by the spiritual lyrics of inspiring hymns, sing along to your family's favorite classics (and find the words to every tune right here!), trim the tree with Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole, or share a laugh with the Chipmunks and other funny songs. Whatever you are in the mood for, we have all your favorite music in one place.
