Alternative Christmas Music
If you would enjoy traveling back to the Middle Ages for a while, light your candles, turn off most other light and put on "Christmas In Days Of Old" by Rolf Lislevad. The songs are European medieval Christmas classics from 1300's to 1674 from Norway, France, Italy, Switzerland, England, Spain and Germany. Lislevand manages to rediscover the pure and simple essence of songs I have heard hundreds of times. The album gives a great escape from the commercial stress often associated with modern christmas.
