Description

“I’ve always loved Christmas music for its sacred content and the sense of “otherworldliness” it brings to the season. There’s a nostalgic warmth I feel toward these particular songs that are only dusted off once a year. For a long time I’ve been looking forward to the day when I would make my own musical contribution to the treasure trove of beloved songs from Christmas past. Alas, the day has come!” ~ Josh ”
