Good Shepherd Band releases "Repeat the Sounding Joy"...

Coverreal Today I am pleased to announce the release of “Repeat the Sounding Joy”—a new album of Christmas carols by our Good Shepherd Band. This recording is the culmination of five years of creative work on the part of our musicians. The crucible for that work has been our annual Christmas Sing-A-Long. Every December, we hold a special evening service in celebration of the Incarnation of our Lord. It's a kind of contemporary take on the traditional Lessons and Carols service...

This being the fifth annual Sing-A-Long (why they hyphenate it like that, I have no idea), the band decided to commemorate the occasion by recording their favorite arrangements of (mostly) old Christmas classics. Start to finish, the album was produced in-house by the band. And "in-house" means down the hall in our Sunday School rooms.

The whole thing is tremendous! The song selection, the production quality, the long list of musicians, the artwork; everything!

Buy yourself a copy. Better yet, buy a whole bunch of copies and give them away as Christmas presents this year...

I thank God for the opportunity to worship and make music at ClearNote!

I praise God for the sacrifice of time and love from these musicians and their families. Usually I stick to listening to Christmas music during November and December. I think I'm going to have to change that.

I think this is already blessing a lot of people. I'm glad Jody and Phil worked especially hard the album.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you, ClearNote Church. My family wanted the words to be able to sing along better, so I created a 2-page PDF lyrics sheet, available here:

I had to guess in a couple of places ("From death and hellish thrall"?) and welcome any corrections, but I think it's singworthy.
