Christmas Music - Scottish and Celtic

When decorating your home this year with tartan ribbons and wreaths, or while baking shortbread for the neighbors or a party, put on a bit of Scottish Christmas music to help set the mood (a hot toddy wouldn't hurt either J).

Scottish Christmas music lends the haunting sounds of pipes to traditional carols and songs. Or choose the soaring voices of Celtic singers Enya and Loreena McKennitt. This selection of Scottish and Celtic CDs will put you in the Christmas spirit for sure.

EP means there are only 5 tracks, only one of which is a Christmas song. However, that one is "Silent Night" sung in Gaelic by the most popular New Age singer of our time. If you're a fan, or if you want to hear this beloved song in Gaelic, you gotta have it.

The Virgin's Lament
