For every vision of Christmas as a party filled, noisy affair there is a dream of a quiet Christmas. 12 days where your front door is not host to neighbours you don’t really like or family members you don’t get on with. And for those who don’t need a soundtrack to channel their inebriated self here is the perfect companion – a set of slow Christmas songs that will dictate your pace as you lounge around the house in a beautifully serene state. And if the tiny tapping noise on your window merely signals another dollop of snow isn’t it just the loveliest thing to have Frank Sinatra whispering sweetly in your ear on ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’?

No list of slow Christmas songs would seem complete without Karen Carpenter’s tender vocals on ‘Merry Christmas Darling’ which describe how the best Christmas’s are those spent with someone special. Logs on the fire, lights on the tree and a sax solo that is thankfully stripped of all ostentatiousness. Even the normally fast talking Elvis sees fit to comply with playlist rules and for once kicks back and surrenders the jive for a solemn ‘Silent Night’. Tracey Chapman adds a perfectly reduced version of ‘O Holy Night (Cantique De Noel)’, stripped of orchestral embellishment but losing none of the important message.

So as you'll hear Christmas music does not need to be garish loud, it's softer underbelly can be just as much fun.
