Mannheim Steamroller’s Christmas album is (nearly) the only one I can stand to listen to for the whole duration of the Christmas season, which for me starts today and goes through New Years. I mean, today, Christmas Eve Eve, is the first day I ever deliberately put a cd of Christmas music in the player. This is that cd.
On the off chance you’re not familiar with Mannheim Steamroller, give it a listen.

Lo a rose e’er blooming is probably my favorite. I went to the compline mass last night at St Mark’s Episcopal cathedral in Seattle.* This was their closing hymn. (They opened with O come o come Emmanuel.) It is just gorgeous when done in a big echoing room, the chords rolling off the walls like music sung in a round.
* I strongly recommend this as a destination by the way if you are visiting the Seattle–every Sunday at 9:30pm is a service put on entirely by the choir, with holy music and chant. It is broadcast live on the radio.
Thanks for the links, Pete!
