This one cheered me up - Mary Poppins may not exactly be Christmassy, but this was the opening of this year's Late Late Toy Show, which is shown in Ireland at the end of November and always makes me feel like the festive season has begun.

I hadn't heard that one before, Mad. :D

This is the Gustav Holst setting of 'In The Bleak Midwinter'. I much prefer this setting than any others I've heard.

This piece by Prokofiev isn't actually about Christmas. It's from a 1930s movie called "Lieutenant Kijé" and is called "Troika". It has however become associated with Christmas. :)

Benjamin Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols". :)



Ignore the picture - it has nothing to do with the music.
