Catholic Playlist Worship for Advent & Christmas

Music for the Complete Season of Advent


We’ve arrived to the end of Advent and the Virgin Birth is imminent. We wait together and sing our praise and wonder for the Child to be born.

Like everyone else, I’m crunched for time when we reach Advent and the end of the calendar year. So much to do and try to wrap up in time to relax once Christmas arrives. For me, this includes getting web postings done for the latest Catholic Playlist shows. Which is a great disservice to you, our faithful listeners, for you get to miss out on music specially written and composed for this season of preparation. We’re so sorry about this and resolve to be better next year.

Jaime Thietten Joy of ChristmasWe play many of the ‘classics’ from your favorite artists – Jackie Evancho, The Priests, Kitty Cleveland, L’Angelus, St Paul’s Choir School, and Adrienne Price. We’re also pleased to include music from two new releases for 2016. Jaime Thietten just released a new Christmas album titled The Joy of Christmas, and we’re pleased to include “O Come O Come Emmanuel” in playlist #80, which is just 1 of 17 songs. This album is well worth a listen and belongs in your collection of music.

abigail-winzer-rejoiceNew artist Abigail Winzer released her first album Rejoice, which includes seven classic songs. This album is peaceful and relaxing to listen to, thanks to a unique instrument called the duduk, which creates a rich, haunting sound. Don’t miss her performance of “O Come O Come Emmanuel” in playlist #78.

Hopefully your wait to hear this sacred music for the season was worth it!
