Here you will find five of the best Christmas songs of all time in the original versions and instrumental versions.

White Christmas

“White Christmas” is a 1942 Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. According to the Guinness World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 100 million copies worldwide. Other versions of the song, along with Crosby’s, have sold over 150 million copies.

For Christmas 2009 Lorenzo Pescini, pianist composer, together with the painter Francesco Nesi made this nice video with an original piano version of White Christmas.

Jingle Bells

“Jingle Bells” is one of the best-known and commonly sung American songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too “racy” (and secular) to be sung by a children’s church choir in the days it was written. Although not originally intended on having any connection to Christmas, it later became associated with Christmas music and the season in general.

In 1943, Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters recorded “Jingle Bells” as Decca 23281 which reached No. 19 on the charts and sold over a million copies.

For Christmas 2010 Lorenzo Pescini, pianist composer, together with the painter Francesco Nesi made this nice video with an instrumental version of Jingle Bells.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

“Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”, also known as “Let It Snow”, is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.

First recorded for RCA Victor in 1945 by Vaughn Monroe, it became a popular hit, reaching #1 on the Billboard music chart the following year. Woody Herman’s competing recording, featuring himself on vocals and a notable trumpet solo by Sonny Berman, peaked at #7 on the Billboard chart.

For Christmas 2012 Lorenzo Pescini, pianist composer, writes a new version for piano and orchestra of the song “Let it snow!”. In this video, the song is accompanied by graphics made by Elizabetta Talone.
