    I just picked up the string quartet 3 cd set from arkiv music, but there are a number of traditional instrumental cd's on their site.

    Not new, but I love love love December by George Winston. Piano. Released in 1982, and still easily available. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decembe...Winston_album) This music just makes me feel serene.

    If you've followed skating for any length of time, you'll recognize the song "Thanksgiving" which Annenko & Sretenski used in 1993. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHBm_IcqEjc

    Most of my instrumental Chrismas music is in the jazz genre -- I'm assuming you would have specified that if that's what you were looking for.

    But in the more traditional realm, my favourite would have to be The Canadian Brass. They have a couple of Xmas albums, but the original, A Canadian Brass Christmas, is still their best imo.

    For Celtic instrumental, you can't go wrong with anything by The Chieftains or Loreena McKennitt -- tho their albums tend to be a mix of instrumental tracks and vocals.

    I have more Christmas music on my iPod than anything else. If I could convert some of the vinyl I still have, there would be even more.

    Can't help Jenny - but I have friends that have compiled a holiday CD every year for 10 years as their Christams card. All secular, all strange or obscure.

    Two of my all time favorites. I always have a soft spot for "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" "All I want for Christmas is you" "Please Come Home for Christmas" (Eagles version).
