Ponkool4 It's one of the few contemporary Christmas albums that features hymns in an inventive way, and that's why it's my favorite Christmas album. Favorite track: Mvmt II, "Begin and Never Cease".

thehartnett A truly inspired work. Amidst the hustle and bustle of commercial Christmas comes a piece of art that launches out of the 'reason for the season' into the fullness of life itself, making it music for all seasons. I don't know how you did it, but thank you! Favorite track: Mvmt III, "Silent Night, Holy Night".

while shepherds watched their flocks by night all seated on the ground the angel of the Lord came down and glory shone around "fear not," said he, for mighty dread had seized their troubled minds "glad tidings of great joy I bring, to you and all mankind!" o tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy o tidings of comfort and joy "to you in David's town this day is born of David's line the Savior, who is Christ the Lord, and this shall be the sign: the Heavenly Babe you there shall find to human view displayed and meanly wrapped in swathing bands and in a manger laid" o tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy o tidings of comfort and joy Noel!

about

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men."
