Christmas Music {free!}

By now, you’ve probably had your fill of Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree and Jingle Bells. As much as I love Christmas music, I have to take it in short spurts. An hour here, twenty minutes there. I don’t like it when I hear the same song over and over and over again. I feel like I”m caught in some sort of kitchy parallel universe and I can’t get out.

Last year, my church put out an incredible Christmas CD that I don’t mind listening to over and over again. When it was finally time to put on some Christmas music, I tore through my room trying to find this CD. I never did but that’s okay.  A friend of mine let me know that it’s available as a free download online. Hallelujah!

Josh White {from Telecast, one of the greatest worship bands you should listen to} put together the CD, teaming up with other awesome musicians from the church. Emily Otteson, an adorable petite blonde with pipes that are a cross between Zooey Deschanel and Amy Winehouse, does a great job as a background singer. Emily is a worship leader at the church and a true worshipper.

It’s not your grandmother’s Christmas music. Some tracks are brilliant. Others…well, you have to be part of the congregation to appreciate them fully. Over all the CD is perfect to play when the lights in the house are down low, the ones on the tree are sparkling merrily, and you have time to muse over the true meaning of Christmas.
