Here are the top Advent songs as voted upon by the TopCatholicSongs community. We had nominated Advent-oriented songs from our own repertoires, and then instituted a vote as to which songs were the best.
These artists represent the best that Catholic music has to offer:
- Promised Messiah by Gretchen Harris
- O Come O Come Emmanuel by Kitty Cleveland, (a medley with Coventry Carol)
- Comfort Comfort by Maureen and Bill Hayes
- Holy Is His Name by Lynn Geyer
- A Child Shall Lead by Lynn Geyer
- Something's Gonna Come by Joel Stein
- Waiting for the Christ Child by Nancy Krebs
- Magnificat by Trish Foti Genco
- In the Stillness by Trish Foti Genco
- Day of the Lord by Deacon Chuck Stevens.
Advent is a joyous, hope-filled, incredible Season, that makes participating in the Christmas Season all the more precious. I cannot reccommend these songs highly enough, and see these songs as a helpful reminder that Christ's coming to us, first as a baby in the manger, and second from the clouds.
