Hi all -
Every year I want to listen to some good Christmas carols, and pull out my collection. And every year I am disappointed.
I grew up Catholic, going to church and singing Christmas carols in Latin, no less! Not looking for Latin, but just searching for some good ole fashioned Christmas carols, like Silent Night, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, We Three Kings, Oh Holy Night, Good King Wens (never could spell that name), Adeste Fidalis, Joy to the World, - you all know what ones I mean.
And I don't want the 'modern' versions - dang, some of them sound like hip-hop. And no singer screeching or dragging out the notes. No hopped up music, making a 4 minute song into 2 minutes. Could handle instrumentals but would prefer singing.
Saw an ad on TV a few weeks ago but lost the phone number. Anyone know of any good music CD's for the holidays. My dh suggested we try a Christian store and I might do that but figured I'd ask here first.

I still have my old collection of traditional Christmas music which I purchased way back when in 1970 from a Penney's catalog...recorded on four 33-1/3 LP records. It has everything from The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Bing Crosby, Mahalia Jackson ("Go Tell it on the Mountain"), to Gene Autry, Jim Nabors..and last, but not least...Julie Andrews, who was in her prime. I have not been able to find another collection of Christmas music like this one since..and never will.
