Christmas Worship (Fervent Records)
by Paul Baloche
FOR FANS OF: Kathryn Scott, Lincoln Brewster, Aaron Shust
Rating: 4 Stars
Even though it’s a fairly star-studded affair (with guests Kathryn Scott, Aaron Shust, All Sons and Daughters, along with songwriting by Jason Ingram and Lincoln Brewster), the heart of this album lies in its gorgeous arrangements. Strings and piano are heavy throughout, which makes it appropriate for congregational and personal use. Of particular note is the medley of “This Is Love/Come Thou Long Expected Jesus,” which is lilting, perfect and bears the message of the season.
