I'm looking for instrumental Christmas music fitting the following parameters. (I'm writing a paper and looking for some good seasonal working music!)
- Instrumental. No vocals whatsoever.
- No electric instruments like electric guitars, synthesizers, etc. (Like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.) Basically I'm looking for pieces played by instruments in a symphony orchestra, piano, acoustic guitar.
- Thinking more "classical" music, i.e., orchestral, solo piano, solo guitar, quartet, chamber orchestra, etc. Not looking for straight-up jazz, although jazzy arrangements are fine. Weakness for solo piano.
- Both secular and religious music welcome.
- Unlike this
question, I welcome schmaltzy/syrupy as long as it fits the above parameters!
Some examples of things I like:
Michael Dulin's Christmas at Our House
- solo piano
Steve Eckel's Comfort and Joy
- classical guitar
Northern Lights Orchestra - What if Mozart Wrote "White Christmas"
- orchestral, schmaltzy (it has a classical arrangement of the Chipmunk Song...)
