The great thing about Christmas albums, is that you can go back to your favorites every single year. From Mahalia Jackson, to Edwin Hawkins to Kirk Franklin, every major artist seems to have a Christmas project.
We have compiled our favorites over the years, and written a few words about each. So, although these aren’t recent Christmas albums, they merit some very serious attention this time of the year. You may differ from us in our choice, but we consider these to be definitive Christmas classics from yester-year.
