Christmas Music

Christmas Songs
By Don Shetterly
One of the things I love so much about Christmas is the music. Whether it is the Christmas Carols that we sing or holiday music playing on the radio, there is something pleasant and peaceful about these songs. These songs bring back some wonderful moments from my childhood. They transcend me from problems in this world to a magical time of hope and possibility.

I was often playing the piano during Christmas programs at church or for the high school choir.  It was always a fun time for me and of all the music that I performed publicly, holiday music was what I most enjoyed. Playing Christmas carols music in nursing homes or hospitals on the piano, often made the residents and patients gleam with joy. It warmed my heart as well with peace and love.


If you love Christmas music, I think you will enjoy the Christmas music download of the CD I created. These are some of my favorite Christmas carols music that I love to listen to and play on the piano. This is very relaxing piano Christmas music that has received some wonderful feedback. The CD can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster or other online digital sites.


Here are the Christmas Carols on the CD.
  1. Silent Night, Holy Night
  2. Angels From The Realms Of Glory
  3. Away In A Manger
  4. The First Noel (Nowell)
  5. What Child Is This?
  6. We Three Kings
  7. It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
  8. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
  9. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
  10. O Come All Ye Faithful
  11. Joy To The World
  12. Deck The Halls
  13. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
  14. Christmas Morning Bells
  15. Christmas Medley

The total length of this CD is 38 minutes and it is all piano Christmas music played and performed by Don Shetterly (Me). There is no singing in any of these songs. Christmas Morning Bells is my own creation of the hope and joy of Christmas morning as the bells ring in Christmas. Christmas Medley is a medley of The First Noel (Nowell), Angels From The Realms Of Glory, and Away In A Manger.

If you need to find lyrics to these Christmas Carols, I have put together a pdf that you can download for free. It is on my ChristmasPianoSongs.com site and is about 6 pages long. It always seems like you can never find the lyrics in a format that you can easily and quickly print when you need them during the holidays. I have tried to make this available to help out in those times where you have a Christmas party or celebration and you need the lyrics.
