Welcome to this year’s EJN Christmas Sampler! We are excited to celebrate the holidays with eleven excellent songs to get you in the spirit including several familiar Christmas songs, a few original compositions, and a traditional Hebrew song along with a few surprises.

We close with jazz voilinist Cathy Morris two tracks from A Jazz Violin Christmas: Angels We Have Heard On High and her exciting Medley: What Child is This,Il Est Ne Le Divine Enfant, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
