It's been a long time since I've gotten a new CD, and I made up for it by receiving four new ones for Christmas!
Several months ago I asked you all for suggestions of uplifting praise music, and you didn't disappoint. I just received two of the recommendations and have really been enjoying them--Sing Over Me is a fabulous compilation featuring several wonderful female Christian singers (including one of my favorites, Nichole Nordeman). I also got a copy of the upbeat Seeds Faith CD and appreciate that all the lyrics are taken directly from Scripture.
The other two discs I received were Christmas albums. I find Jim Brickman's music to be quite relaxing, and was excited to receive a second one of his holiday recordings. At the recommendation of Mer, I added Sara Groves' Christmas CD to my list, and enjoyed Sara's new arrangements of old favorites.
While we're on the subject of music, I also want to tell you about a new singer-songwriter I just discovered. I'm really enjoying listening to her on-line, and was even more excited to learn that her music producer is a college friend of Eric's. What a small world! She's labeled pop/rock/alternative, so if that suits your taste, I encourage you to check her out.
Anyone else get new music for Christmas?
