Catholic Music CDs

The touchstones of Christmas, for some, are the holly boughs, the lights and cookies. For our family, it is the music that expresses the awe and mystery of the Incarnation.

Frankly, I’ve always been a bit of a party pooper when it comes to irreverent Christmas songs, like Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer and It’s Christmas at Ground Zero.

When I’ve gone shopping for new Christmas music, most of it is an unpleasant modern twist to old favorites or with a predominantly Protestant slant.

At last! We’ve found a “one stop” source for really excellent Christmas music to suit every taste.

Click on the album images for a track listing and to listen to samples.

We’ll be shopping here as well. Let us know your favorites.

Free Christmas Music Downloads

We recognize that our taste isn’t everyone’s taste. Here are two collections for younger people that you can download. Despite the odd graphics, the lyrics are quite devout. We like Ave Maria.

An Elephant Hug Christmas

The Choir at Your Door

The Announcement of Christmas

Nuns of the Abbey of Regina Laudis

The nuns of the Abbey of Regina Laudis are back, bringing listeners a rare opportunity to experience the original Christmas music of the monastic tradition. The original Christmas music was sung as an act of prayer, voices raised to God in worship, rather than as a performance. The Announcement of Christmas carries listeners through the different phases of the season: the four weeks of Advent, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and finally the Epiphany. With selections that range from majestic ensembles to stunning solo pieces, a musical masterpiece that at once thrills the ears and opens the heart to the birth of Christ.

Christine Hirschfeld

I never intended to run a Catholic antiquities and book business. Not in a million years. As a cradle Catholic, I grew up in a house that was filled with Catholic images and sacramentals not to mention an abundance of excellent books provided by family members who worked in publishing houses famous for their Catholic catalogues. The beautiful images and concepts presented in those books certainly had their effect in enhancing my identity as a Catholic. As the years passed, even in the midst of very un-Catholic settings, I became a repository for my friends’ Catholic “found objects.” Eventually, I had a family of my own. We’re a small family. There are just three of us. And two of us were born with the “junk collecting gene.” Garage sales attracted us like a magnet.
