Some spiritual, and not so spiritual, music for this time of year.

As you may know, St Paul wrote to the Phillipians "If there be therefore any consolation, any comfort any fellowship, and mercies, fulfil ye my joy by not arguing about the relative merits of Spotify as against other on-line music sharing software."

For people who can't get it, the songs in the above list are:

Stand Up For Judas - Leon Rosselson
By and By - Chumbawamba
Let the Mystery Be - Iris DeMent
A Pilgrims Way - Peter Bellamy
Passing Through - Pete Seegaer
Jesus Christ - Woody Guthrie
Friday Morning - Timothy, Revelator
The Country Boy - Jake Thackray
Were You There When They Crucified My Lord - Johnny Cash
Christ For President - Billy Bragg/Wilco
When The Ship Comes In - Bob Dylan
The Trimdon Grange Disaster - Martin Carthy
John Ball - Grace Notes
The Good Friday Magic - Richard Wagner

What a great list. The Country Boy may be the greatest religious song ever written, despite having its melody nicked from Heroes & Villains by the Beach Boys. "Living her life between the scandalised fist and the beckoning finger" and "Clinging to life with hands that had always been empty" always get me...
