the holy, holy sound of chorales singing church music on CD–human voices celebrating spiritual joy, peace, and quietude. (It’s on a par with the monks’ voices at Santo Domingo.)
The voices of women and of children choirs are the best–truly tailor-made for the holiday season. I cannot get enough of colored Christmas lights on the tree and chorale music all of December. These reflective, peaceful sounds represent the best of Christmas atmosphere and leave one in a state of relaxation and grace desiring nothing else.
Music that lifts, ennobles, and elevates mind, feelings, soul, and spirit. A monthly meditation devoutly to be wished.
I recommend the 6-disc Christmas 101 CD set from Decca illustrated below.
