Beauty as an Argument for Christianity

I never took a music appreciation course, but, with carols playing in our family room this Christmas Eve, something is very clear: Christmas music is beautiful.  Where else in the pantheon of the world’s great religions and philosophies is there anything that rivals this aural beauty?  Could it be that not only has the Gospel produced unparalleled masterpieces that are feasts for the eyes and ears, but that Christianity is the only plausible explanation for beauty itself?
