I just heard Spiegel im Spiegel for the first time a few days ago. It's gorgeous and easy to enjoy, like a lot of Part's other work. I'm happy to have discovered him after I was put off late 20th c. classical by a frightening encounter with Elliott Carter. It was Part who made me brave enough to give it another try.

Alan Hovhaness (1911-2000) is another modern-era composer whose work is beautiful and accessible, with a dreamy quality I find ideal for late-night listening. I can recommend his Concerto for Harp and String Orchestra, Op. 267 and Sonata for Harp, Op. 127.

Two of my favorite pieces of lesser-known Christmas music, both Baroque:

1. Concerto Pastorale - Johann Melchior Molter
watch?v=-D_aHWJjbMg is a lovely period-instrument version.

2. Concerto in E Major "Per il Santissimo Natale", RV 270 - Antonio Vivaldi
watch?v=-Eqnvcbkpj0, Fabio Biondi and Europe Galante, period instruments again.
