For us it is Roberto Alagna's Chants Sacres CD, with Bach, Faure, Berlioz, Bizet and of course <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/LWq5OWYaXDw&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/LWq5OWYaXDw&rel=1</a> (a childhood memory for me)! Fabulous!

Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije, esp. Troïka of course.

My family will probably try a load of poncey shite as listed in the previous posts. I think I'll commandeer the CD player though and bung on some Guns 'n Roses or something equally offensive to my tame relatives tastes....
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Oscars dad is now, thanks to an ill-advised visit to the iTunes store, the proud owner of 4' 33'' by John Cage.  I suspect that will be the top pick on his iPhone over the festive period.

The only one I can stomach is this.

I'm disgusted to find out that Snow Patrol tried to cover it though.

For me it has to be A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from Kings.

I have a recording of the 1967 Festival - it's absolutely beautiful.

The Phil Spector - Christmas Album
Diana Krall - Christmas Album
Various classical Christmas CDs of carols etc.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

The Phil Spector - Christmas Album


I love that. And Now That's What I Call Christmas, which I bought on vinyl when I was a teenager.

I was wondering how long this thread was going to last before everyone started pitching in with the classic pop fluff !  In that case I will +1 Fairy Tale of New York  :)

I love the Steeleye Span version, but I think you can't beat a male choir singing it in a cathedral or church.  The acoustics really add to the music.

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses.
As soon as I here that in a shop or on the radio, Christmas is officially on the way IMO.
YMMV  ;)

I'll go with Reg and King's College Nine Lessons and Carols.  Even though I'm playing for about 6 carol services this year, I'll still enjoy listening to the 'proper' service!
