OT - Holiday Music Thread

While Republic tends to frown upon off-topic chatter around here, it IS the holiday season - perhaps they’ll allow this as the cyber version of decorating (you do allow decorations in your physical offices, no?). And, if you’re playing the music on your Republic phone, it isn’t really off topic, is it?

So, without further ado, and to prove we’re not all either Scrooges or Grumpy Guses, I suggest people post links to some of their favorite holiday music. The only “rules” I’d suggest is one link per post, and to read through the existing posts so as to avoid duplicates.

  2. Silent Night – but I’ve yet to find a great recorded version; it’s hard to beat the effect of holding a candle and singing (or in my case, attempting to sing) with a few hundred semi-strangers
