Christmas is past, obviously, but I still wanted to post some favorite Christmas music.

I really like “In the Bleak Midwinter,” which apparently is very popular in England.  This performance is by Dame Kiri De Kanawa and I chose this particular video because it includes the lyrics which I always find is a nice addition.

Another that I quite enjoy is “El Nino Querido” or “The Beloved Child.” I believe that it originated in Catalonia in Spain. This version is performed by The King’s Singers in Spanish, but I believe the Tabernacle Choir has performed a version in English. Maybe I’ll find and post that one for next Christmas.

Finally, here is a performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir of “Whence is That Goodly Fragrance Flowing,” a 17th century French carol.

Who says you can’t enjoy Christmas’ beautiful music all year long?
