Dinsdale's Festive Faves End of Season Roundup


Dinsdale's Festive Faves End of Season Roundup

Here's a link to all eighteen installments

Dinsdale's Festive Faves 

Here are all of the albums, available on Spotify, from this year's collection of Festive Faves. Despite listing over a hundred works in multiple genres this is still just fraction of the wonderful Christmas music I try to listen to, or at least sample, each season. Hopefully my dear readers have found a new favorite or rediscovered a forgotten gem over these past few weeks.
