The Holiday Music Fest
One of my favorite holiday albums -- well, albums, since the first was so terrific they did a second one -- is Christmas Goes Baroque, with songs arranged in the style of classical music by Peter Breiner, who conducts rich symphonic performances. It's quite wonderful, music that you know are popular songs but you'd swear they were written in 1685. Here are two of my faves. This first is "Jingle Bells."
And this second comes from the sequel, Christmas Goes Baroque 2. It's a remarkable arrangement of "White Christmas" in a way that it sounds like Bach's Air on a G-String.
