Five Christmas Songs

I believe I mentioned that I love suspensions. In music, I mean, which is not to say that I don't love suspense of the non-musical variety also. In case you also love suspensions, I made a playlist with my favorite movement of Corelli's 'Christmas Concerto' at the top of the list. It's a great way to get your daily quota of suspensions. Or maybe you are wondering what in the world a suspension is... but who knows, you might still like the music. Pretty much every Christmas Eve I get to play this movement in a church service or two and it always makes me happy.

Then I put 'For Unto Us a Child is Born' from Handel's Messiah on the playlist, too, because who doesn't love that chorus?

Then, because I was afraid you'd think I was a music snob, I added some non-classical classics: Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. And finally, I put on one of my guilty pleasure Christmas songs. A song I totally sing along to on the radio this time of year, and hope no one judges me too much for it.

Get a playlist!
