I started these six years ago. At the time, it was hard to find good Christmas music. You had to buy lots of CDs to get the good stuff. I started pulling that stuff together for friends and family.
iTunes has changed that somewhat. Music is easier to get, but the filters they have still send you to the same old stuff. I try to stay pretty far off the beaten off, but there are always a couple familiar renditions.
The links below will send you to iTunes. You can download the others because they were free or cannot be found anywhere.
