Sorry about the post solstice response, I'm 9 months pregnant, and so the rest of my extended family is coming here to celebrate Christmas this weekend, since I can't travel to them. AGH!
Most of the songs I like best, and many more as well, I found at this website:

Circle Round and Sing has 3 Yule songs on it, and Reclaiming put out a chant CD called Through the Darkness that has my favorite Solstice chant as the title track. My holiday music playlist on my computer also includes a couple of winter themed songs from Heather Alexander (, including a brilliant parody of her song, "March of the Cambreadth," the celtic rock band Tempest performing "I Saw Three Ships," and instrumental versions of Christmas carols.

i FORGOT TO ADD OUR MEMORY CHAINS- they came out so beautiful!!!
The big kids cut out snowflake chains for each of us and we wrote our wonderful memories of the past year- these we will keep for years to come and put into scrapbooks later on

Peace in Nature's sleep.

Silent night! Longest night!
Pagans' Yule fires light, A
Promise of the coming Spring
Growing warmth the new light brings
On Solstice morning he's born
On Solstice morn he's reborn.

Silent night! Longest night!
Darkness slain by the light
Holy King gives up his crown
As Brother Oak King cuts him down
Mysteries of death and rebirth
Mysteries of death and rebirth
