Music - Christmas Hymn Mix

I think I've mentioned this before...Matt can only listen to Hymns and Primary songs in his particular mission.  The mission president doesn't care who sings them or what style/genre they are performed in as long as they are only Hymns and Primary songs.  This has proved to be tough to find.  Even the Mormon Tabernacle Choir doesn't put out a CD that is ONLY Hymns. 
The past few days I've been working on a putting together a Christmas Hymn Mixed CD to send to Matt and some of our other missionary friends and I thought I'd share what I came up with.  I uploaded all of our Christmas CD's to iTunes (I have quite a few because we really like Christmas music around here) and only ended up purchasing a few titles to round out this selection.  Using iTunes you can make a playlist by simply dragging a song from your 'library' of music and dropping them into your playlist.  From there you can even move them around so they play in a specific order.  You can click on each song below to see the album that it comes from.  Here's what I came up with:
I printed the playlist and cut it down to size and inserted it into this handy, dandy CD cover I made.  Using this template, print out your CD cover onto 8.5" x 11" seasonal scrapbook paper.  Fold on the dotted lines and paste or tape the side tabs leaving the top tab open to allow you to insert your CD. Just a little more festive than a jewel case or the plain white sleeves that I usually use.
What hymns would you put on your Christmas playlist? 
Do you have any all-time favorites?


  1. This year for the missionaries serving from our ward, I asked those that have musical talents to share them. We came up with 21 songs - we burned the cds with holiday music and mailed them out.

  2. That's an awesome idea, Karen! Our Stake has a Night of Christmas Choirs the first Sunday in December. They always record it but I never thought to send it to our missionaries. I love it!
    Thank you!

  3. This is so perfect! Thanks so much!!!

  4. That's a great idea! I really wanted to download that template but it's not available ... :( ... Luckily my daughter can listen to a lot of inspirational music so I've burned a LOT to CD for her. Is there any way to still get the template? Thanks so much!

  5. Sorry you couldn't get it to work. I emailed you the template as an attachment. Good luck to your missionary!
