100 Years of Christmas Music - 1990's

Music has always been a vital part of my Christmas celebrations, even since I was a child and into my adulthood.  During my childhood my family started out with a small radio that my parents placed on the fireplace mantel but then years later that was replaced with a surround sound stereo.  However, the real music that stands out in my memory was from Christmas Eve candle light services hearing the German Baptist choir harmonizing the songs of the season.

Even more precious than the choir music that I have memorialized in my heart occurred around the Advent Wreath during our 
"Advent Family Worship" (click HERE to read).

In this series I will feature Christmas songs from each decade over the past 100 years.
We just finished featuring songs from the 80's (click HERE to view 1980's)
  Today we continue our musical study with the "1990's."
This decade finally brought the end to the Cold War in 1991.  However, the Gulf War began in August of 1990.  The World Trade Center bombing happened in 1993.  There was great economic growth during the 90s.  The Worldwide Web took off, personal computer ownership also boomed and email became popular.  DVD media started in 1994, the first MP3 player was released in 1998, CableTV and 24hour news cycles became mainstream.  The Y2K scare really started the "Prepper" movement of stocking up and growing your own food.  Natural/organic foods boomed as did the vitamin supplement industry.  Near the end of this decade President Bill Clinton was impeached.

Lake Wobegon (by Garrison Keillor) was a very popular PBS radio show during this decade - this was a unique version of The Twelve Days of Christmas:
