Well, I have a rather elaborate audio systems. I still play lp’s and I have a lot of lp records.
My ‘always on Sunday’ favorite is on HIFIRECORD, ‘Hymns That Live’ with George Write on pipe organ playing the great old hyms you just don’t hear in church’s anymore, like; Ivory Palaces, The Old Rugged Cross, Evening Hymn, Rock of Ages, Sweet Hour of Prayer, Nearer My God to Thee, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, I Would Be True, Beautiful Isle to Somewhere, I Love to Tell The Story, Abide With Me, Softly and Tenderly, In the Garden and Onward Christian Soldiers.
This record brings tears to my eyes as it reminds me of my youth when these hymns were song, with the church organ, but no longer. We no longer have a choir, the organ stands idle and unused. All we have is a rock band playing somekind of gospel rock songs, -it’s just not the same thing.
But I also have some Christmas favorites like ‘The Sound Of Christmas on the Radio City Music Hall Organ with Dick Leiert, RCA Records and ‘Christmas Organ and Chimes’ with Charles Smart on Organ and James Blades on chimes; London Records.

I do like some songs from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, anything from Bing...

To me this is the best version of The Holly and the Ivy... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57l6dSbVppM
