Song of the Week: A Cradle in Bethlehem

Since it's the Christmas season, I'm going to take advantage of the Song of the Week and start posting Christmas songs.  Where available, I'll post Amazon links to the CDs in case you want to purchase them.

As a kid, the times I remember my parents playing music at home the most was during Christmas.  The record player (yes, records) would mostly collect dust the other 11 months of the year, but it would get heavy use this month.  Without a doubt, my favorite record was Nat King Cole's The Christmas Song (a 1963 re-release of the 1960 album The Magic of Christmas).  To me, nothing ushers in the season quite like the rich honey sound of Nat's voice.

The first song this week is one that I've become a huge fan of in recent years.  It's called "A Cradle in Bethlehem".

The second song this week is the standard "The Christmas Song".
