Christmas

Over the years I have created  lots of music relating to Christmas, so I thought it was time to pull some of the strings together.

(For other Winter season works (Solstice, Hannukah, Saturnalia etc) also see the Winter Celebrations page)

I have divided this page into: Religious/Spiritual , Secular , Comic/Curious and Instrumental works.

Each piece has links to a score, mp3 and/or video.  

Each link opens a new tab (or a new window).
