Our home was always filled with music while I was growing up. Classical, folk music, Schlager, opera, instrumental…my mother singing as she worked… there was always music. And during the Holidays it was German Christmas Music CDs.
Germans love music… and they LOVE to sing. We spent 30 minutes of every 3 hour German School class SINGING together!
And especially at Christmas time. Weinachts Musik would fill our world. Traditional songs handed down from generation to generation…. “Leise Rieselt der Schnee“, “Ihr Kinderlein Kommet”, “Kling Gloeckchen”, “Still, Still, Still” … and of course…. “Stille Nacht”. These songs set the tone for our holidays. We knew all the words, and we would all sing…everyone. We sang for the joy of singing, (and it seemed no one cared what your voice sounded like, as long as you sang along with enthusiasm).
And the choir music… how can you not listen to “Es Ist Ein Ros Entsprungen” without feeling the holiday spirit?

Singing the songs means knowing the words… These books have words and music. Does someone in your family play piano or guitar? (Remember, Stille Nacht/ Silent Night was originally written for the Guitar!) Perfect to accompany the singing. Some even come with a CD to help you along.

This is exactly what I play when I’m having a quiet evening of wrapping or reading.
Heino, Heintje, Peter Alexander… and more
These are the voices of my childhood… the German Singers who were the soundtrack of my world. Of course, today it’s different, but for those of us from a certain Generation… it’s all so familiar, and a special Christmas Memory.
Unfortunately, some of these are quite pricey, as they are imports. Others can be downloaded. You will find vinyl and cd.
