Advent Music (By Popular Demand)

If Meika and Shelly can count as popular demand, a few ideas for Advent music:

First, there is usually an Advent track or two on your Christmas albums. I highly recommend using the gift of mix CDs to take those songs and put them together.

I do have an Advent playlist on my iPod. Here are a few things. This is not comprehensive, some are not specifically Advent-y, but…

  1. Cat Stevens, Morning Has Broken
  2. Providence-St. Mel Choir, Freedom is Coming (also available somewhere on St. Olaf albums…)
  3. Norah Jones, One Flight Down (which I associate with this time of year because I heard a sermon where it was used once)
  4. Triakel, Adventspsalm
  5. Alex De Grassi, Medley: Christ the Apple Tree
  6. Beki Hemingway & Jonathan Rundman, Mary’s Song
  7. Richard Proulx & The Cathedral Singers, On Jordan’s Bank
  8. Richard Proulx & The Cathedral Singers, Advent Procession
  9. Jonathan Rundman, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
  10. The Elora Festival Singers, Gabriel’s Message
  11. U2, Yahweh
  12. Full of Grace, Sarah McLachlan
  13. BeBe Winans, My Sweet Lord
  14. Anonymous 4, Blooming Vale
  15. John Michael Talbot, Advent Suite
  16. Alison Krauss, Down to the River to Pray
  17. Beth Nielsen Chapman, Veni Veni Emmanuel
  18. Elora festival Singers, Jesus Christ the Apple Tree

    This sounds like an amazing list- I’m not familiar with many of the songs but I might try to track them down! Great idea on the Advent playlist.
