Loreena McKennitt - To drive the cold winter away

 
This is a collection of "[s]easonal music with a fresh and serendipitous approach ... of traditional and lesser-known winter and Chirstmas carols"; it can, however, be played throughout the year. The album "was recorded on location at an artists' retreat and a monastery in Ireland, and a Canadian church."
