Pick The Winning Carols: Our Bracket Of Christmas Classics Is Down To The Festive Four

· Dec. 7, 2020, 4:00 am

We're down to the final four carols — the Mount Rushmore of holiday hymns if you will. Every song that's made it this far is a winner, but only one can be the champion carol of Christmas.

Who will it be?

"O Holy Night" vs. "Carol of the Bells" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" vs. "Silent Night."

You tell us. Only two rounds of voting remain. It was a long road to get here through 32 songs and the tough choices made in the elite round of eight. Now it's down to the festive four.

Fourth-round voting is open through Dec. 8. We’ll announce the carols that move on and open round 5 voting on Dec. 9. We’ll declare a champ on Dec. 14. And don’t forget to listen to CPR Classical’s Carol Countdown on Saturday, Dec. 12 starting at 2 p.m.

Votes in the bracket will be used to help arrange the annual CPR Classical Carol Countdown. You can find the rest of our holiday programming here.
