MY PLAYLIST FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON

The nights are drawing in, there’s a nip in the air, and everywhere you go there are twinkling lights—it’s time to prepare for Christmas! Let this album of festive classical works help you to get ready for the holidays as you light the Advent candle with Chilcott, build a snowman with Korngold, untangle the fairy lights with Liszt and get the box of baubles down from the loft with Tchaikovsky. Then, once the halls have been decked and the presents are placed underneath the tree have yourself a merry, musical Christmas!
