I’ve also been listening to “This Winter’s Night” by MotherTongue- on tape.  For some crazy reason I can’t find it on CD or a download.  This recording has the best ever rendition of “Carole of the Bells” that I have ever heard- accompanied by drums!  Other great tracks from the MotherTongue recording include; “Abbots Bromley Horn Dance/ This Longest Night”, and the serenely beautiful “Winter Solstice Sunrise”.

  1. Hey Tressa, thanks for putting this list up. I was listening to the radio
    last night and wondered if there were any songs to counteract a lot of the traditional christmas music out there. Thank you for making this blog, I have learned a lot and have told folks about you on the Pagan homeschool groups that I am on.
