Featuring over 20 Christmas songs varying in styles from Black Gospel to Celtic to Latin, as well as many traditional favorites, this collection showcases the choir's range and their contagious energy. Also featured on this CD are several solos, including the soulful "O Holy Night" with Tammy (Wilkerson) Smith, the compelling "Don't Save it All for Christmas Day" with Jessica Wasmer, and the enjoyable additions of Rusty Douthitt, John Wittmer, David Bickel and Shelley Myers.
Titles include "Winter Wonderland," "Let it Snow," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and traditional favorites such as "Angels We Have Heard on High," "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," "Away in a Manger" and more. Rounding out the collection is a stirring rendition of Celine Dion's "Don't Save it All for Christmas Day," featuring Jessica Wasmer.
