Christmas is here and there’s absolutely no Christmas without classical music! And not just by Pavarotti! Even the most ardent Pavarotti fan appreciates Christmas songs sung by other than Pavarotti himself, at least now and then!
In the spirit of even more Christmas music here is just a sample of Christmas compilations featuring Pavarotti and various other classical artists. All compilations are issued on the Decca sister label Deutsche Grammophon.
All the compilations includes only Pavarotti tracks from his Decca Christmas album “O Holy Night“, so there’s nothing new here for Pavarotti fans. These album should be obtained because of all the other Decca and Deutsche Grammophon artists that are included.
111 Classics for Christmas (2014) is a 5 CDs collection of Christmas songs, choral and instrumental works by various artists. What makes this compilation particularly interesting is the many tracks of German Christmas music. In Germany this compilation is naturally entitled “111 Klassik zu Weihnachten”.
Christmas Gala with the Stars (2012) is a 2 CDs collection of mostly Christmas songs sung by various well-known classical artists. If you only want a small Christmas compilation I believe this compilation is a very good choice.
Christmas ‘Round the World (2008) is a single CD collection of mostly Christmas songs and choral works from all around the globe. So how about Christmas songs from Sweden, Italy or Australia? Well, then this is the right Christmas compilation for you!
All the compilations above are available on CD, download and streaming, but the last compilation might be hard to find in the CD format.
Many more Christmas compilations from Deutsche Grammophon are to be found, either on CD, download or streaming, but some compilations might be hard to find in the CD format. Look and you shall find!
On of the second Christmas compilation mentioned above one of the featured Pavarotti track is “O Holy Night”. I really love this Christmas song!
I wish you all a merry Christmas! Thank you so much for visiting Odd Pavarotti Blog! 🙂
