Free Christmas Music from Magnatune

Magnatune founder John Buckman announced on his weblog today that Magnatune is giving away a compilation CD of Christmas music from Magnatune artists.

For the next two weeks or so we’ll be giving away free downloads of our brand new Magnatune Christmas Compilation featuring over 60 minutes of seasonal favorites as played by ten different Magnatune artists. It’s a predominantly instrumental compilation, but there are a few select vocal pieces as well including the absolutely angelic sounding Con Brio children’s choir and the renowned women’s vocal ensemble, Kitka.

I just downloaded the MP3 version of the CD, though they also offer a set of high-quality WAV files, suitable for burning to a CD.  The music is classical and wonderful.

If you’ve not explored Magnatune, they have a great group of artists in many different music genres.  Their model for selling CDs is simple.  You choose what to pay for a CD or download and half of what you pay goes directly to the artist.  I’ve bought several CDs from there and have found many great artists that I’d never heard of before.  I really like the model and the non-DRM downloads you get access to right after paying.

Follow the link above to John’s weblog for access to the download.

Thank you, Magnatune, for this wonderful gift.
