Choral Christmas Music

Posted on December 14, 2012. Filed under: Choir Music, General Church Music, Stake Music |

Directing church choirs means listening to Christmas music in July. That’s right, 5 months in advance if you want to have time to choose, order, and receive your music in time to rehearse. When choosing Christmas choral music you will need to do a lot of listening. Listening to quality recordings will not only help you decide on repertoire but will also help fine tune your ear to listen for a good choral sound. Here are some of my very favorite choral Christmas albums. This is the music that inspires me when it comes to choosing music for ward and especially stake Christmas programs.
