    LvB "Missa Solemnis", FM "Elijah" might fill the bill.

    One of our "traditions" musically, for the holidays, is "The Canadian Brass Christmas". Their take on the 12 days is a hoot.

        I made a run for dinner for Xmas eve (zounds, found pretty cheap Dungeness here in SD, thought that would be for trips back to bay area). The local classical station started the Xmas cantata just before I got back home. I cranked it on the radio at home, turned the sound off on the football, and had a pretty wonder soundtrack for NFL. I do need a recording of that.
