12 Days of Christmas music: 1st day

Good tidings!
I try to do the 12 Days of Christmas most years, and this year I decided to post a favorite song each day for the 12 Days of Christmas music. (It is very difficult to choose only 12.)

The selections will be varied — some more familiar, some less so, but the music educator in me encourages you to sample all of them with an open mind, curious ears, and a generous heart.
To kick things off, we have a real winner: A Musicological Journey through Christmas by Craig Courtney. It’s the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” with each day represented by a different musical style/composition (the picture of Brahms should be of Mozart), and it’s a hoot. This performance is by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Enjoy!
