Not that you should keep your famous classical Christmas music listening for Christmas Eve alone but there is something awe-inspiring about these orchestral wonders  when the cold darkness sets in on the most beautiful night of the year. With candlelight and family nearby it is a hushed and reverential experience before the secular awakenings the following morning as gift after gift leave their paper shells behind. What this playlist attempts to do is condense the best classical Christmas music in one place but if you wish to extend your experience please take yourself off to our dedicated page of this rapturous noise.

And though this playlist is but 9 songs long you will doubtlessly hear something new that you haven't come across before. Like Emile Waldteufel's delightful 'The Skaters Waltz' which was written in 1882 as the French composer took in the vista of Parisian ice-skaters on their merry whirls on the frozen Seine river. And lest you be confused regarding its Christmas CV there are plenty of sleigh bells towards the finish! Vivaldi's 'Winter' from 'The Four Seasons' and 'What Child Is This?' should already be on your radar but that doesn't take anything away from their epic sweep. Handel's 'For Unto Us A Child Is Born' is also well known but given its atmospherics and religious theme it makes for ideal companionship as the clock comes close to tolling the midnight hour on December 24th.
