At the end of a sometimes frustrating week, at the end of an often difficult semester, and at the end of a frequently laborious year (but at the beginning, praise God, of a still hopeful Advent season), I was made aware of the latest recorded offering from Mass Anthem, a Nashville-based pop group compromised, in part, of former Judson University students of mine. Mass Anthem Christmas features a few fresh arrangements of familiar Christmas fare, a song or two new to me, and a beautiful instrumental. I commend it for your holiday listening pleasure. After listening to the EP, I enjoyed some of Mass Anthem’s back catalogue, as well, and was reminded of my fondness for their sweet vocal arrangements and tasty production values. If you’re new to this group, I think you’ll enjoy this introduction.
The Lord be with you!
