Teaching Recordings – Christmas Hymns

Merry Christmas!

We had our annual Regional Christmas service yesterday and we had a great mix of music – some classic hymns, high energy rock, tender strings and ukelele, 50’s rockabilly, and even some rap.  Anyway, in preparing for the service I put together a few teaching recordings that I thought might be helpful to you worship teams out there in your services the next couple weeks.  I’ll also include what I called the “Joy to the World chant” – we did a high energy version of Joy to the World and then went into this – you’ll recognize the chorus and I wrote some verses which different soloists did caller/response style with the congregation.  (This is just a thrown together demo recording, but you get the idea, in case you’d like to try it.)   By the way, we also did Chris Tomlin’s song “Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)” – what a fantastic Christmas praise song.  And a great version of “Do You Hear What I Hear” by Third Day we’ve done before.  Have fun with Christmas worship the next couple weeks!
