The Xmas List, No.10: ‘Songs For Christmas’ by Sufjan Stevens

2315621231xnewssufjanstevenssongsforxmas
Sufjan Stevens’s splendid, seasonal new album (try saying that after a gallon of mulled wine) is a boxset wich pulls together five years’ worth of his Xmas-themed EPs: namely ‘Noel’, ‘Hark!’, ‘Ding! Dong!’, ‘Joy’ and ‘Peace’.

Normally we wouldn’t touch Christmas music with a tinsel-wrapped bargepole, but this is lovely stuff, perfect for putting on as the soundtrack to a post-roast turkey game of ‘Fall Asleep By The Fire And Snore Like Your Dad’. It includes charming, folksy versions of a heap of Xmas hymns and classic songs, including Silent Night, Once in Royal David’s City and We Three Kings. Sounds naff, but it isn’t. BUY IT
