Cello Christmas Tunes

Christmas music is a fun change of pace from the other 11 months of the year.

Some songs are terrible (ahem, Little Drummer Boy), but I'm pretty much a fan of any holiday tune played with a cello.

It just sounds so classy and deep and powerful.

Some examples:

Carol of the Bells (for 12 cellos), performed by the Piano Guys

Cello Christmas, performed by Noah Littlejohn

The Wexford Carol, performed by Yo-Yo Ma and Alison Krauss
I wish Yo-Yo Ma had been featured more (or his mic were turned up), but it's still good.

Silent Night, performed by Yo-Yo Ma

Oh Holy Night, performed by Apocalyptica

Now that is some high-quality holiday music; definitely gets me in the spirit.

Any other good ones that I missed?
