There’s nothing like Christmas music to set the tone and stir up our hearts for Christmas.
Nothing except Advent music, of course, because Advent hymns are designed specifically for the Season before Christmas that we’re in now.
I have many Advent tunes I like a lot. This one, however, has always been my favorite.
Wherever you go this time of year, you are bound to hear some great holiday tunes. Make sure you alway include your daily dose of Advent tunes to the mix.
Last year I posted a number of Advent songs and invited you all to share your favorites in the comment section. Art Chartier from the Peanut Gallery shared a link to a collection of Advent hymns, which I’d like to share here again: Hymnary.org (Advent Hymns). And I also decided to reblog that post again today.
This year I want to try something different. My intention is to post something every day during Advent. I don’t know if I can post a different Advent hymn every day, but I’ll try. There certainly are enough versions of these songs in different languages, especially if we consider Gregorian Chant. If you want to help me out with this project, please suggest some hymns to me along with your comments, and I’m sure I can feature it on one of my posts up until Christmas.
In the meantime, have a Blessed Advent!
