Here are a few of my favorite Christmas videos. They include an eclectic mix of Cloverton, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra,
an unlikely duet sung by Bing Crosby and David Bowie, and Casting Crowns. All the videos are embedded on this
page so you do not have to go anywhere to view them (it will take a few seconds for all
of them to load). Watching the instruments being played really enhances the effect of the song.
I used to have all the videos embedded in this page for easy viewing all in one place, but each year I have to
go find new versions because last year's had been removed. So, this time I am just linking to the YouTube web pages
since in most cases the owners are not permitting their videos to be embedded.
favorite new Christmas music video, titled "A Hallelujah Christmas," is by
You might recognize the music adapted from
Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
two videos produced and performed by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
have become very popular on the Internet as well as on DVD. We have the special Christmas DVD that has these two
videos as well as others from some of their concerts. "Christmas in Sarajevo" is a theme in the passage and urgency
of time - my favorite subject. "Canon in D" is their rendition of
Pachelbel's Canon; it is amazing.
was on September 11, 1977 that David Bowie and Bing Crosby joined together at the Elstree Studios in London, England.
Crosby was there to tape what would prove to be his final Christmas TV special (he died on October 14, 1977 — 33
days after taping the duet) and he invited Bowie to appear as a guest star.
songs with kids voices in the background are some of the finest in my opinion. This song titled ,"I Heard the Bells
on Christmas Day," by the group "Casting Crowns," is a great example. Enjoy.
