I have been making a musical advent calendar for more than a decade. In that time I’ve sorted songs by place, time depth, mood, theme, characters, and more. This year, I plan to offer new songs, or at least new-to-me songs. It’s easy for me to show the songs I love most over and over.

Born on a New Day, for example.

Quelle est cette odeur agreeable

O Magnum Mysterium

Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming

Comfort, Comfort Ye My People

What Sweeter Music

All My Heart This Night Rejoices

I could go on. And on.

But I won’t. Instead I’ll find new songs.
