These Christ-centered carols in a gentle style with classical style accompaniment make a restful but inspirational background for relaxation amidst the Christmas rush.
Give your homeschool a holiday touch with Christmas music in the background during schooltime or as a sing-along with your children. Use this CD with our Christmas penmanship book, A Treasury of Christmas Carols to Trace and Color, to teach your children the carols you love and to draw your family together during the holiday season.
Joymarie’s trained voice is soothing, rich, and sweet, and is accompanied by James’s and Joshua’s gentle but exhilarating classical-style harmonies on harp, recorder, flute, oboe, and strings, in a style reminiscent of Baroque composers.
James sings baritone harmonies in some of the songs, and the children also sing several of the songs with Joymarie. Our music is very relaxing, yet intricate enough to keep revealing new musical secrets each time you listen to it.This CD includes the following tracks:
- Jingle Bells
- O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
- In the Bleak Midwinter
- Joy to the World
- Away in a Manger
- What Child Is This?
- Little Drummer Boy
- Of the Father’s Love Begotten
- It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
- Once in Royal David’s City
- Ding Dong Merrily on High
- Stille Nacht (Silent Night in German)
- Un Flambeau (Bring a Torch in French)
- O Holy Night
- Angels We Have Heard On High
I really like your music! It’s so beautiful and subdued…I hope you and your family will continue to create beautiful music.
I have been very blessed to discover *Christmas Carols Sweet and Clear by the Dunlap family…. Their voices are fresh and inspiring and the songs they have chosen are among some of the most God-honoring out there. This is a great addition to any family’s music collection. It will certainly be a collector’s item at our house.
