As Christmas celebration is just a few days away and I really love listening to Christmas carols, now I’ll share some of my favorite christmas albums.
1. Dream A Dream by Charlotte Church
Dad gave me this album 10 years ago as a christmas gift. You know when I was a kid, I was a fanatic of opera-classical type of songs. Yeah that was a little bit freak for a kid. hahaa. Charlotte Church owns an amazing voice. There’s no reason for me to not liking this album that’s become my favorite christmas album of all time. Try to listen “Dream a Dream” where she did a duet with Billy Gilman. That’s my fave.
2. Navidad (A Holiday Celebration)
This is a kind of jazzy instrumental christmas carols. Every christmas, the sound of this albums never fail to fill my home with the lovely christmas atmosphere. Listening to this album will make you feel really tranquil because of the smooth jazz easy listening sounds. 🙂 Too bad I can’t find the image on the internet. So, I take my own pic with the CD. No problemo, then~
3. Wishes : A Holiday Album by Kenny G
My auntie introduced me to this album last Saturday and let me copied it to my laptop :p So yeah I started listening to it. No comment. I’m lulled by Kenny G’s sounds of saxophone. This is a super album.
Do you want to to know what’s my favorite christmas song for all time? It’s “The Christmas Song”. You know, the one that begins with the lyrics “chestnut roating on an open fire”. I don’t know but I feel some kind of magical everytime I hear that song. Here, I embedded the video by its original singer, Nat King Cole
I’m planning to make a piano cover of that song for welcoming christmas, but I don’t know whether I can make it or not. I’ve got the piano sheet, but it’s a little bit difficult for me. I’ll try, anyway and I’ll post it on youtube later if I can make it. 😀
Yayaya..I can’t wait for christmas and this year will be special because I’ll perform with my church choir in the christmas eve mass.
I realize that these recent years, my family have different christmas celebration compared to when I was a kid, as my brothers and I have become older now. However, the most important thing for us is to spend a day together as a family on the christmas day. That’s priceless.
So, happy counting days until christmas, guys! Today is day-19 by the way. 🙂
