Be the first to review this product

The Wonder of Christmas -- the title encapsulates many emotions, memories and truths about this amazing event. You already know David Hamilton's work from the best-selling Christmas collection Christmas Fantasia. In that same style, David has teamed with Karla Worley to create a worship event that weaves contemporary songs and traditional Christmas carols with biblically based narrations. This collection reminds us of the majesty of the Savior's birth. Sentimental heartstrings get tugged by well-known songs and carols of the Christmas season and the original underscores that depict the many facets of the Christmas story. The structure is flexible, allowing you to pull every choral piece for Sunday mornings, use the overture for an offertory or even use the finale in a pageant setting.

The recording was created with a rich choral sound to emphasize the majesty and power of the arrangements and may sound a little difficult, but be sure to sing through some of it yourself to find out what a craftsman David Hamilton is at making accessible choral writing that sounds great.
