The canon of December music is replete with carols, Irving Berlin ditties, and Yuletide novelty songs. But for Chanukah? There is the dreidel song, of course, and Adam Sandler’s SNL humoresques, but, at least when I was a kid, there was a surprising dearth of music for the occasion. So, on this the 7th day – when I just got a lovely gift of Philip Glass music to keep me awake as I trek to Concord tomorrow – I thought I’d see what I could dig up in the way of Chanukah music. Enjoy. (Personally, I think the Maccabeats are a riot.)

The Maccabeats – Candlelight

The Maccabeats – Miracle

Matisyahu – Darkness into Light
