kranzYesterday my husband asked me whether I had some seasonal music we could play during dinner. I enquired whether he meant Christmas songs. No, what he wanted was something fitting for advent. Finally I chose Winter from The Four Seasons, but was not completely happy with my choice.

Have you got any recommendations for music that fits advent but is not yet true Christmas music? (I can come up with several hymns to sing in church, but nothing I just want to play as background music during a meal.) Songs would be perfect, as would just instruments. Please help me out!
