Merry Christmas to you! Yes, it's that time of year again when we spend time with loved ones doing things like: eating, shopping, and listening to music!
It's also a wonderful time to spend with family and friends looking for a special tree to display or some new ornaments to hang on it.
This is also one of my favorite times of the year for music. So many grand pieces of music have been written for this season over the centuries.
You may like Classical Music as I do. The Bach Christmas Oratorio and Handel's Messiah are two that come to mind.
Or, you may like some of the older Christmas hymns. Hark the herald Angels sing, Joy to the World, and It came upon a midnight clear are a few that my family has sung for years.
You may also enjoy newer versions of traditional songs by Artists like Harry Connick Jr, Mariah Carey or Trans-Siberian Orchestra. (You may even listen to some singalong tunes with Mitch Miller in the closet where no one can hear you!)
Whatever you enjoy, I've recorded some new music and released it onto this website. It's a combination of two old classics - Away in a manger and Silent Night. I've also re-released some older Christmas music that I did a few years ago.
It was fun to do and hard work at the same time.
I started working on the new track in the Spring of this year and finished it late in October.
Until I started to do home recording, I never really knew how much time and energy it took to make a decent track.
Feel free to share this with your friends or family and download it if you'd like to.
It's my gift to you. It's the least I can do since the Savior who gave me new life, Jesus is His name, freely gave it for me and for you.
Blessings this season and always,
