This is exactly the kind of album I hope to discover each Christmas season.  Musically, it’s full of well-orchestrated, under-stated, rootsy, home-grown melodies. Lyrically, its full of joy, reflection, humility, and wonder. Carolyn Arends has been recording music for over 17 years, and has logged ten albums, two Dove Awards, and has authored three books – yet she appears to be in her prime right now. Yes, you will find a few remakes of classics, including “O Come All Ye Faithful,” a finger-snapping version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” and a cover of loved Rich Mullins’ song “You Gotta Get Up.”  But the real star of this album is Arends’ songwriting, with nine originals on this project.  Her fresh storytelling approach is refreshing and timeless – like these lyrics: “Through it all a baby cries/ Hush now listen, that’s the sound/ Of the Kingdom coming to your town.” If you are a fan of Andrew Peterson’s Behold The Lamb Of God, you will likely love this release – THE best Christmas album of 2014! – Under the Radar
