Music Monday: Mery Christmas!

Here are a couple of Christmas songs that I simply love. They stand in contrast to each other - in style, in mood, in message, and in the reactions they elicit. One is bright, joyous, and hopeful; the other is gritty, sad, and raw. But both are terrific and I wanted to share them on this Monday before Christmas.

The first is "Labor of Love" from Andrew Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God. Definitely not the Renaissance painting version, but beautiful for its honest picture.

The second is "In The First Light" from Glad's The A Cappella Project. A constant crescendo of hope and promise through the end.

So, what are your favorite Christmas tunes this year?

"Labor of Love" is an amazing song. I was so moved the first time I heard it.

And yes, I got the CD! On Thursday, I think. Thank you so much!

"How Many Kings" by downhere and "Bethlehem Dawn" by Todd Agnew. Similar theme and very worshipful and reflective. Merry Christmas!
