Made a short, random Holiday Mix! [DOWNLOAD]

1. Narodil sa Kristus Pan – Tublatanka (1993)
This is in Slavic but the lyrics are almost identical to the carol the Czech choir at my parents’ church sings every year.

2. Wayfaring Stranger – Burl Ives
Mr. Holly Not-So-Jolly Christmas.

3. Noel – Serge Gainsbourg* (1968)
From the soundtrack for the film, Le Pacha.

4. Ex illustri nata prosapia – Las Huelgas Codex (13th c.)
The Las Huelgas Codex is a music manuscript for a choir of 100 women at a convent in northern Spain in the 13th century, despite Cistercian rules against the performance of polyphonic music.

5. Home for Christmas – Heaven & Earth* (1973)
This is what sipping a marshmallow-loaded mug of hot cocoa by the fire sounds like.

6. Lifes Illusion – Ice the Falling Rain (1983)
Not really a Christmas song, but the name of this UK New Wave group is so wintery sounding.

7. Anorak Christmas – Sally Shapiro (2006)
Italo revival done right.

8. O Holy Night – The Moog Machine (1969)
From the album Christmas Becomes Electric.

*Grabbed these from the Finders Keepers Records Christmas podcast. Good stuff!
