The list finished up strong, with my favorite seasonal hymn, and then my favorite Christmas track that I own.  The new age toodling of Tom Stacy on English Horn is beautiful background listening to get yourself into a Christmas mood.

1 One of the sound guys at church is active in the Salvation Army, and has given the brass ensemble members a copy of the Christmas in Brass CD for the last 3-4 years. You’re a good guy, Dan.

2 In college back in the early ’80s, we used to listen to Fresh Aire, long before the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas phenomenon.  American Grammaphone is one of the best things to come out of Omaha.
