I love Christmas music! And I especially love FREE Christmas music. Check out some of these great downloads and you can fill up your iPod or MP3 player with Christmas tunes without spending a thing. MP3’s also make easy and great gifts for any techie on your list. The following freebies are totally legal and legit products given away by the people who are actually entitled to do so.
www. amazon.com I have always enjoyed shopping at Amazon. They have great prices, fast, cheap shipping, and down-loadable music and videos, too. Starting with December first, Amazon is giving away an MP3 a day until Christmas….that’s twenty five free Christmas MP3’s for your listening pleasure. You can still download past free Christmas tunes until Christmas Day. You’ll want to check it out so you can listen to such stars as: Indigo Girls, Manheim Steamroller, Mercy Me, and Point of Grace. While you are browsing www.amazon.com, make sure you check out the other great MP3 Holiday Deals, such as $5 albums, Christmas CD’s and more.
www.feelslikechristmas.com If you like Indie Artists, visit www.feelslikechristmas.com for some more free Christmas music. The music that you can download on this website has been submitted by the artists themselves, so you don’t need to be concerned with the legality of your downloads or worried that these songs were bootlegged. These songs have been graciously given to you by the artists to give you the opportunity to hear their work.. There are lots of styles and artists to choose from at no cost to you. All you need is a simple little download from iTunes in order to have the necessary software to play MP3’s.
If you prefer MIDI files, mouse on over to www. nethymnal.or g. Net hymnal has over 10,000 hymns for you to play on your computer. Amongst these hymns are a plethora of Christmas songs for your listening and learning pleasure. They also have scores and author bios for you to read. This is a helpful sight from the person planning a worship service to the person that is listening from their netbook. The best part about MIDI files is that you can important them right into your music notation software.
Of course, iTunes has always been the go-to shop for MP3’s. Every week they offer a new MP3 freebie for you to enjoy, and right now they happen to be offering two great Christmas songs: “Christmas Time is Here” and “Silent Night.” Many other Holiday tunes are on sale for sixty-nine cents, a great deal when MP3’s from iTunes normally run ninety-nine cents a piece.
My favorite place to pick up free music is also my favorite place to grab a latte – Starbucks! Every Tuesday Starbucks puts out a new, free release for you to download and enjoy. It may not be all Christmas music, but it is free, and it will give you a nice taste of the robust varieties of music that Starbucks sells at its local coffee shops, including a plethora of Christmas albums.
Merry Christmas and Happy Listening!
