Christmas music can be a love-hate relationship throughout the holidays. On one hand, it puts you in that cheerful festive mood, often prompting some spur of the moment carolling. On the other hand, you’ve got a constant drone of cheesy repetitive commercialised Christmas tracks that send you a bit mad.
It’s a shame when the latter happens. Music is the perfect way to capture and enhance the spirit of something. In this instance, the spirit of the season. Just think, movies would only have half the impact without their soundtracks. Christmas music should induce a sense of warm welcoming, relaxation and a magical touch of frost.
So that we can keep the spirit alive without becoming irritated with the over-played jingles, we’ve compiled a completely chilled list of Christmassy tunes to make it feel as though twinkling tinsel can be transported through sound waves. Get the sound systems ready and allow these contemporary tracks to elegantly whisk you through the next few weeks, guiding you humming into the New Year.
Enjoy blissful relaxation with our unique Christmas music selection:
Chilled Christmas Music Nº1
First on the list is the 32nd mystical chillstep mix by OnlyChillstep (YouTube Channel). Prepare for 1hr and 11 minutes of pure zen that transports you to somewhere like Narnia. You’ll feel like you’re wandering around in awe as snowflakes float around you. Truly magical and out of this world!
Chilled Christmas Music Nº2
This next mix lasts 63 minutes and takes instrumental to a whole new level. If you enjoy the traditional carols and songs we’ve come to be familiar with, you’ll love this beautifully orchestrated piece by composer Peter B. Helland. The 5-song playlist is a delight for the senses and features lullaby-like concertos of:
- O Holy Night
- Silent Night
- Angels We Have Heard On High
- O Come All Ye Faithful
- In The Bleak Midwinter
- Fairest Lord Jesus
Chilled Christmas Music Nº3
Christmas Time Is Here (Acoustic Cover) – Daniela Andrade
Not the first time I’ve written about Daniela Andrade and it won’t be the last. Her poignant voice and guitar playing in this sweet-as-anything video will be stuck in your head for days to come. Soothing, calming and beautifully Christmassy.
Chilled Christmas Music Nº4
La Vie En Rose (Daniela Andrade Cover)
This is an oldie but a goodie. Daniela captivates us once again with her angelic take on another classic. This track always sets the mood. Light those candles, get by the fire with your glasses of wine and love the night away.
“Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose.”
Where’s the mistletoe?
Chilled Christmas Music Nº5
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Mellow Jazz)
There’s nothing like a bit of smooth mellow jazz to wind the evening right down. This lovely rendition by the George Cable Trio is the perfect track for when you’re busy in the kitchen and could use some good tempo accompaniment.
Chilled Christmas Music Nº6
Little Drummer Boy (Guitar Cover)
Bryan Rason performs this exquisite arrangement of Little Drummer Boy, solo on his guitar. His mixture of tapping, strumming and whatever else you call those mesmerising techniques creates an easy-to-relax-in atmosphere. Prepare for tingles down your spine (the pleasant kind of course).
Chilled Christmas Music Nº7
Indie Folk Compilation
These gorgeous indie tracks are not all specifically Christmassy, but would fit perfectly against the backdrop of a still Christmas Eve. It’s 1.5 hours of melodic ‘silence’.
Here at The School of Natural Health Sciences we wish all of our students and followers the most stress-free magical Christmas yet. We hope these tracks can help you wind down a notch or two and take a moment to appreciate the gifts in your life and those yet to come.
