Bifrost Arts produced, what is to me, the best Christmas album of all time called: Salvation Is Created. If you’ve never heard it, you’ll be strangely surprised at how much you like this album. Using only minor keys, it sounds like a robust, theological, Christmas version of Edward Scissorhands. For those of you looking get your hands on a quality, substantive, musically appealing Advent album, look no further.
Enjoy a sampling from it below:
Under the babyʼs head she held
Love, love, sing Emmanuel
Lending at His birth, peace on all the earth
See His mother Mary weeping Love, love, love.
Over the shepherds, angels tell
Joy, Joy, called Emmanuel
Born in Bethlehem, good will unto men
Bend before His cradle singing Joy, joy, joy.
Down from the throne of Heavʼn He fell
Light, light became Emmanuel
Covered in our flesh, swaddled in our dress
Wise men to His coming chasing light, light, light.
Onto the ground His blood He spilled
Peace! Peace! Cried Emmanuel
Sinners dark and vile, God to reconcile
Spilling love and joy and light and peace, peace, peace.
