Contemporary Christian Christmas recordings

Contemporary Christian Christmas music is some of the most evocative out there - who can hear a modern arragement of "Away in a Manger" or "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" without flashing back to that happy holiday season? The albums we carry contain the traditional carols of centuries past, more modern carols we all grew up with, and in many cases, original works sure to be added to many a family's annual caroling sing-a-long. Some of the groups interpret the works and make them uniquely their own, others perform more traditional versions, but one thing you can rely on is the spirit and talent with which the music is sung!

Derric Johnson : Christmas in Velvet Charts

Review: Quite probably the busiest performing a cappella group in the country The Voices of Liberty are also one of the longest running professional a cappella groups as they perform several sets each and every day at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The group follows in an even longing-running tradition of Regeneration, as both are almost the same as they were both directed by, and perform almost exclusively the arrangements of, the great Derric Johnson. The sheet music we've all been waiting for, finally some of Derric Johnson's finest Christmas arrangements have been printed for us to sing! Included are 3 Volumes of 4 songs each from the namesake recordings.

Songlist: A Cappella Christmas Vol. 1, Away in a Manger, Gesu Bambino, Go, Tell it on the Mountain, O Holy Night, A Cappella Christmas Vol. 2, Deck the Halls, Go Where I Send Thee, It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, Jingle Bells, A Cappella Christmas Vol. 3, Christmas In The Air, French Chorale of Praise, Pat-a-Pan, We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Take 6 : A Take 6 Christmas

Review: One of the most well known A Cappella groups of today, Take 6 continues to amaze us with their beautiful and unique arrangements. 'A Take 6 Christmas' is an exciting medley of classic Christmas carols, including "Silent Night," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Sweet Little Jesus Boy," and "O Come, All Ye Faithful," as recorded on the He Is Christmas album. In 'A Quiet Place,' the guys take this subtle hymn and turn into a triumphant, yet soothing, gem with lush harmonies and lots of heart.

Songlist: A Take 6 Christmas (A Medley), Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (medley), Sweet Little Jesus Boy (medley), O Come, All Ye Faithful (medley)

Various Arrangers : Christmas Spirituals

Review: Very few people arrange a cappella better than Don Besig and Nancy Price! 'There is Joy, Joy, Joy! a new Christmas gospel joins the rank of their other great hits in this genre. Subtly employing the spiritual 'Go, Tell It on the Mountain,' this piece practically sings itself. You will treasure each moment spent on this anthem perfect for Christmas but also good for Epiphany. Next we have an actual arrangement of 'Go Tell It on the Mountain.' From the moment your choir starts the rhythmic, gospel-like accompaniment of this well-known Christmas spiritual, to the rousing jazz finale, the congregation will be swept along. Varying choral textures and use of contrasting dynamics provide lively interest. Houston Bright's 'I Hear A Voice A-Prayin'' is another gem. The occasional divisi within each voice part makes this a fun and challenging piece for your choir's Holiday program. 'The Water Is Wide' is done perfectly by Roger Folstrom. Its flowing melodies and lush harmonies make it a great spiritual for any time of the year.

Songlist: Steal Away, Go, Tell it on the Mountain, I Hear A Voice A-Prayin', The Water Is Wide

Heather Sorenson : Christ Was Born for This

Review: Uses: Christmas, Communion Scripture: John 3:16; Isaiah 7:14; Galatians 4:4 The final words, Christ was born for this, from the traditional carol, Good Christian Men, Rejoice, form the foundational textural concept of this new carol. The carol's tune is realized in minor and expressively altered reminding the listener that Christ was born for a divine purpose. We find ourselves looking beyond the manger to the cross. The music is cinematic in character and brings a soundtrack aspect to this message of grace. The interweaving of In Dulci Jubilo and Carol of the Bells is masterful.
