I’m not exactly sure what an angel sounds like. From Bible descriptions they are usually men and people are usually terrified when they first see them. Not exactly the happy cherub angels we think of so often, haha! But I know that there are a lot of scriptures that talk about the angels singing. And I’ve always pictured that to sound like the most beautiful female voices. That might be totally off, but since it’s what I imagine, this blog post will be all about my favorite “angel voices” singing Christmas songs. 😉
Celtic Woman’s “O Come All Ye Faithful” You guys, the Celtic Woman group are just pure magic. If you haven’t heard this song before – listen to it. It’s gorgeous.
Celtic Woman’s “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”. Like I mentioned yesterday, you know I really love an artist/group when they have multiples on my Ultimate Christmas Playlist. 🙂
Orla Fallon’s “Away in a Manger”
Idina Menzel’s “Do You Hear What I Hear?” You should’ve seen how excited I was when I found out that “Elsa from Frozen” (aka Idina) had made a Christmas CD. I love every song on the album, but this is my favorite! 🙂
Kari Jobe’s “O Little Town of Bethlehem”
Celine Dion’s “Ave Maria”
Amy Grant’s “Tennessee Christmas”. My mom grew up in Tennessee, my parents met in Tennessee and the first ten years of my life were spent in Tennessee. So I grew up listening to this song. And even long after our family had moved away from Tennessee, we still listened to this song every single year (sometimes on repeat). Fast forward to 2008… Christopher and I moved to Tennessee (Memphis) for grad school. It was SO special that first Christmas to listen to “Tennessee Christmas” on Christmas day here in TN. And we have continued listening to it every year. This song really does say “Christmas is here!” to me. 🙂
