Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

Snowflake Darker Christmas Music

These come to mind immediately: "In the Bleak Midwinter" (I like James Taylor's), Dolly's "Hard Candy Christmas" usually does me in. There are much older carols like "Down In Yon Forest" that are darker. One you start Youtubing, you'll get other suggestions.

Gosh, I almost forgot "Pretty Paper" by Roy Orbison!
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is awfully melancholy, too, especially the original movie lyrics. (And THOSE were rewritten to make them less bleak!)

I'd throughly recommend the album 'Blue Christmas' by one of my favourite groups 'Over the Rhine' (a husband and wife from Ohio). It's a totally fab album of bluesy/country tunes that can be listened to easily any time of year!

Here's a live version of the opening track 'All I ever get for Christmas is blue'



Over the Rhine have just released a new album (non Christmas!) 'Meet me at the edge of the world' which is also fab!

I had heard of this legendary Red Sovine Christmas song, but I wasn't sure of the title until I did some googling. As Santa says at the end, Merry Christmas!
