LibriVox's Christmas Carol Collection 2009
December 19, 2009 7:32 PM   Subscribe

In 2006, LibriVox released a small collection of traditional Christmas Carols, sung by volunteers from around the world, all in the Public Domain. It was a neat idea. Then, years of silence, no carolers came. Now it's December 2009 and the carolers have returned, with a second larger collection of traditional carols. (orig LibriVox page. Project page.)

At the end of each song it says "This recoding is in the public domain". I guess the rest of Christmas is not.

This is wonderful.

I didn't know my heart could hold more love for LibriVox but it must have grown three sizes tonight.

Thanks stbalbach and LibriVox carolers, I haven't had a smile this broad on my face for this long in way too long. You've made my night and I'm only on the 11th song.

I check out Librivox frequently, but I had no idea about this--thank you for posting this, stbalbach! This will be wonderful to listen to on tomorrow's road trip to visit the family.

This is excellent. My heart grew three sizes today.

Great link - thanks. In hunting down sheet music for some of the lesser-known (by me, anyway) ones to sing with my caroling neighbors, I found the best site on the Web
for free Christmas Carol music
. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Awesome. Are they crossposted to any of the Creative Commons music sites?
