German Christmas Songs by Heino and other Singers on Youtube (Weihnachts Lieder)

with one comment

I have Christmas Songs by Heino that I enjoy so much and this is only the first song of about fifteen. I wish I could find all the others on Youtube!

Heino brings a wonderful Christmas Special all about children and their enjoyment of snow. It seems to have been produced in the 70’s. “Kling-Gloeckschen-kling-a-ling-a-ling” and “Leise Rieselt der Schnee” are at the end of this wonderful video:

Here are some more songs, this time by Monika Martin, who sings them with children quite beautifully.

Someone had this recording of a German medley (Potpouri) of Christmas songs from 1938. The quality is pretty good. My father and mother sang the songs this way. He was born in 1897 and she was born in 1908.

Heintje Singing Some German Carols, but I don’t understand the words of the first one. Is he singing in a dialect?
