Paul Baloche - Christmas Worship [Review + Giveaway]

Paul Baloche - Christmas Worship [Review + Giveaway]

By Julie Terwilliger on October 22, 2013

Warning: This album may put you in the Christmas Spirit!

Next Tuesday (10/29) Paul Baloche releases his first Christmas project - Christmas Worship.  

Christmas classics all wrapped up with worship choruses & topped with a few shiny new songs, this album is a must have resource for the local worship pastor/leader this season.

“Hark the Herald Angels Sing/King of Heaven” Sung with All Sons & Daughters, tags a modern addition "...Let Your glory reign, Shining like the day, King of heaven come” without changing the beauty of the traditional carol, similarly as in “O Come Let Us Adore Him/ We Adore You”.

Familiar voices spread good cheer in “Offering” featuring Onaje Jefferson who adds a soulful touch with vocal runs and gospel choir, perfect for a Christmas program. Simple and soft Christmas hymn “This Is Love/Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” with Kathryn Scott, “Follow That Star” featuring Aaron Shust. And what is a Baloche album without a version of “Your Name”? Dressed with holiday lyrical additions: “Wonderful Counselor Prince of Peace God with us Emmanuel”.

Musical arrangement highlights shine in “Prepare Him Room” - distorted keys and eerie cello make way for the somber alto female vocals of Jennifer Holm, while “Joy To the World/Shout For Joy” latter modern addition written by Jason Ingram & Lincoln Brewster is energetic and electric, yet still has a festive feel with some ringing bells & merry harmonies.

The Christmas Worship experience ends with some very reverent Christmas melody ooh’s in “What Can I Do” by what I believe to be candle holding carolers waiting for some cookies & hot cocoa.
