Classical music: Today is Christmas Day. Here are many hours of classical music to help you celebrate the holiday.

By Jacob Stockinger Today is Christmas Day , 2016. You may have your own collection of recorded holiday music . But if you are looking for familiar or especially unfamiliar classical music to help you celebrate the holiday, The Ear has some suggestions as a sort of holiday gift. There is always the reliable Wisconsin Public Radio and other affiliates of National Public Radio (NPR) , which will feature holiday music throughout the day. And chances are pretty good that the local community-sponsored alternative radio station WORT -FM 89.9 will do the same. But YouTube also is offering some other sources that you can stream while you are opening gifts, eating, mingling, gathering with others for the holiday or just enjoying it by yourself. Plus the audio sites have timings so you can skip or find specific pieces or event movement within the pieces. Here are two: This is a 10-hour compilation that you could stream and play. It includes music by Johann Sebastian Bach , Johann Pachelbel, Franz Schubert and Peter Tchaikovsky among many others: And here is one of The Ear’s favorites, with over one million hits because it features more than three hours of music with a lot of music of the Italian Baroque, including works by Antonio Vivaldi, Arcangelo Corelli, Giuseppe Torelli, Francesco Manfrediini and Pietro Locatelli as well as music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , Hector Berlioz, Peter Tchaikovsky, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Astor Piazzolla : Feel free to make other suggestions by leaving a composer, title and links, if possible, in the COMMENT section. And also feel free to tell us what is piece is your favorite classical music for Christmas and why. The Ear wants to hear. And MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
