Looking for some Christmas tunes?

I apologise to your ears in advance. This post is full of Christmas music, ranging from the traditional to the dance-party vibe. If you are looking for some songs for your church or children's community or church programme, then here are a few we have come across. I have provided the Youtube links to them so you can have a listen. 

Listen at your own risk :) 

Mary, did you know? Stunning! Good to play in the background.
Away in a Manger: A beautiful rendition of this classic carol. 
O Come O Come Emmanuel: A slightly 'dance-party' version of this carol. 
Angels we have heard on high: This is a Youtube clip of the actions to go with the carol. You can purchase the song from Amber Sky Records
Noel: ...more dance party vibes
Noel: a really lovely version to balance out the dance party version above!
Do you hear what I hear: A lovely rendition of this song. 

Hear the bells: This is a good option for children to learn and sing. 
Peace has come: a lovely song from Hillsong. Great for all ages. 
Raise your candle: This is a Youtube clip of the actions to go with the song. Why not use battery powered candles for effect (and a safe experience).
Go Tell It: I dare you to teach this song to your church :) 
The Angels Knew: This is my current fav. Such a beautiful song! 
He chose the Shepherds: An animation along with the song. 
Hey Mary: A song from Aotearoa, New Zealand! A wonderful song written by Malcolm Gordon. You can purchase the sheet music from One Voice.
Beneath the Southern Cross: Another song by Malcolm Gordon and a great song for the whole congregation. God is here! 

Extra level of difficulty:
O Come All Ye Faithful: Planning on going caroling this Christmas? Why not step it up a notch and add a flash mob... 

Thanks to the Strandz website and others for many of these suggestions. 
Do you have any great song suggestions to add to the list? Let me know!


  1. Some really cool songs here. I have used a couple of the Bethel Music Kid's versions of traditional carols for dance performances at our Christmas services. 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel' is a particularly good one.
