If you haven’t noticed already, Verily’s got you covered for whatever Christmas music playlist you’re looking for. We have a jazzy pre-Christmas playlist à la Charlie Brown, a hipster little Christmas, and a Christmas film soundtrack for your workday.

If you’re anything like me, however, sometimes you’re looking for just a traditional Christmas carol—whether choral, sung as a solo, or instrumental—something that harkens back to singing through the neighborhood or perhaps your school’s Christmas concert. And when you’re hankering for the Christmas classics, few can beat the Cleveland Orchestra, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and legends like Kathleen Battle and Luciano Pavarotti to deliver those tunes in spectacular fashion. Today, we present you some of the greatest hits from the classical Christmas canon.
