    The good part about Christmas music in 2017 is that no longer do we need to wait till the last minute to purchase "new" Christmas music. This CD is not released till October 17, the traditional time for new Christmas releases but it had a September 15 release to streams. This gives me, us time to order it and have it for the full Christmas music period, which to me, is the day after Thanksgiving (this year December 1) till Little Christmas, January 6th.

    So,of course this thread is to early as a straight "listening to" thread.but I figured as people ran across new music and gave it a spin they could place it here so we are all aware and we have it when we want it.

    This particular release is excellent and I have it on order.

    Hey eljr,

    When I read your thread title I thought you were really jumpin' the Christmas Holiday! :D Good to read that your getting an early start at your Holiday purchasing. :thumbsup: I do have a few more Christmas albums I purchased since last Christmas. I'll be posting the day after Thanksgiving! I'm sure this thread will be filled with the sounds of the Christmas season! :thumbsup: I always can count on you for getting it started. :thumbsup:

    I saw this in a classical spin thread, don't recall what site,may have been here.
    The poster went out of his way to point out it's excellence.
    So I looked around the net and finally found the release I thought I'd like best, the 2005 SACD reissue.
    It falls under Choral but it's Christmas music.
    Generally I only buy "new releases" of Christmas music but when something comes this highly touted, well you bend your rules. :)
    I too am thoroughly enjoying it.

    I like traditional Jesus type music... Silent Night, Holy Night... The First Noel... It Came Upon A Midnight Clear...that kind of stuff performed by various artists of different genres through the years. Some of the best vocals, clean arrangements and quality productions of recorded music available in my opinion.

    Still getting ready for Thanksgiving, which the family just enjoys immensely. Not a Scrooge at all, just a time for everything.

    One of the Detroit radio stations is already 24/7 Christmas music.
