I love Christmas Music. And you can’t go wrong with the classic songs sung by Sinatra, Torme, and Crosby.
Usually if a current singer or band sings a Christmas song, I want them to stay with the classics and not mess with the arrangements too much. When modern artists try to write new Christmas songs – let’s face it – they are usually pitiful tunes. It’s almost always a song about cold weather and missing “my baby” – or something along those lines.
Maybe its because today’s musicians are disconnected from Christmas?
Well, here’s a FANTASTIC Christmas song composed and recorded in 2010. The Florin Street Band, led by composer Leigh Haggerwood, made a decision to write and record a new “great” Christmas song. And the imagined Victorian England while they were writing it.
Of course – he got no music industry backing. So he cobbled together local musicians, choirs, and singers and created a beautiful Christmas song that you MUST hear! It is just a great tune, folks.
The video is also incredibly well done. Here’s a musical Christmas card for you!
