David Phillips - The Coming of Christ

Featuring a talented dramatic cast, sound effects and original music by David Phillips, this twenty-eight minute, spoken word recording is an inspiring presentation of the entire Christmas story, taken directly from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke.

Emily Mitchell & Gary Schocker - A Harp For Christmas

Gary Schocker is best known as the most published composer for the flute, but also is a world-renowned flutist. He has turned his attention to composing for solo harp, an instrument he is now playing. For this disc he has arranged 21 favorite Christmas carols for harp, performed by the ever-popular harpist Emily Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell's 30-year career includes numerous recordings, as well as performing and teaching around the world. In the words of the Washington Post, "Mitchell commands a vivid palette of colors and uses them with imagination."

Trace Bundy - A Few Songs For Christmas

Trace Bundy must be seen, not just heard. His music is poetry in motion, using harmonics, looping, multiple capos, and his unique banter and stage presence to deliver an unforgettable live concert experience. Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing, but seeing the fan-dubbed "Acoustic Ninja" play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers.

Merrill Leffmann - New and Old Christmas Classics

New and Old Christmas Classics brings the season alive with humor, heart and beauty. It contains classics and new songs that will become part of many Christmas music mixes. It evokes many emotions of the season and manages to capture the real spirit to give the holidays a perfect spice. Make Merrill Leffmann and her Christmas album part of your holiday music selection.
