Seven Christmas Songs I Love (Plus 2) - Part 4
For the most part, if an album is primarily Christmas/winter holiday music, I declare the whole thing "Christmas" and play it from Veteran's Day to Epiphany. So quite a few "winter" songs songs get clumped in like this. I'm not the only one who does this - look at poor "Jingle Bells" and "Let it Snow" - always played at Christmas, but not any other time.

(I was amused when gregmce did his list and had "Linus and Lucy" as his final song on the list. That's probably the only exception that I make to my music classification rule. To me, it's NOT a Christmas song and thus gets stuffed in with my regular music and not in with my holiday songs. Go figure.)

Today's song is not a Christmas (or Hanukkah or solstice, etc) song, but one about the changing seasons. I was looking for a Christmas album that was guitar instrumental and purchased Craig Chaquico's Holiday, sound unheard (like "sight unseen," only musical). Although the album wasn't quite what I was looking for, it had a piece called "Nonesuch/Ladies' Bramzel," which featured a children's choir doing a round. This piece quickly became one of the Christmas Songs that I Love despite not being a Christmas song.
