Resource roundup: Christmas music

If you've been shopping any time lately you've quite likely heard some terrible recordings of Christmas music. It is amazing how badly it is possible to ruin perfectly good songs. Thankfully there is good Christmas music out there. Even better, you don't have to spend much (or in some cases anything) to get it.

My favoute Christmas album is Love Shall Be Our Token by High Street Hymns. You can download the whole album for whatever you want to pay (minimum US$1) Instrumental tracks are also available. The sheet music is free at their website.

Quite a few great artists have also been putting out Christmas music on noisetrade. All the music on noisetrade is free, but you can make a donation to the artist if you want to. Some I've enjoyed are

Aaron Ivey
Rebekah Antoine
Nathan Tasker
Culby X
Sleeping at last

If you have any other suggestions for good free or cheap Christmas music, please post them in the comments.
