Baroque composers were particularly drawn to ancient heathen and Christmas themse as touched upon in the sheperd episodes of the Christmas narrative.

In  eighteenth century Rome, relics of the great liturgical Christmas plays of the Middle Ages survived in populrar sheperd and nativity plays. every year on Christmas  Eve sheperds from the surrounding countryside came to Rome to play on their bagpipes and shawms.

 This recording brings together concertos and cantatas associated weih the events of Christmas,alternating the contemplative and the pastoral as in Corelli's Christmas Concerto and the festive as illustrated in Stradella's Sonata, where the Trumpet becomes a symbol of the power of God.

Alternatively you might enjoy Jingle Bells by Gwen Stefani.
