Way back in 1998 Jeff and I celebrated our first married Christmas. I bought a Christmas cd for him to begin Advent and have done so each of the nearly 15 Christmases we’ve shared together. Jeff’s favorite is still the first one I bought him, Vineyard’s Christmas. Mine has been the Sarah Mclachan’s Wintersong for a while.
This year’s choice is an old fashioned hymn sing album by Jennifer Knapp and Margaret Becker, Hymns of Christmas. I like it for the songs they chose, the fact that they are both altos and their harmonies make it easy for me to sing along with and because I’m becoming a bit rockabilly in my old age.
