Christmas is generally thought of as a time for tradition. Year after year, the same songs get trotted out again and again, allowing each of us to find comfort in the familiar. For those looking to change things up a little, Holiday Celebration: Festive Symphonic New Age is a collection of holiday staples performed by a more new age-style symphony of synths, woodwind, and acoustic guitar. While most anyone who's been through a holiday season will find these songs familiar, numbers like "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" feel dreamier, infusing the season with a relaxing, almost spa-like quality.
