December 4 “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”

The decorations have been out in the stores now for over a month, and recently we began hearing the SOUNDS of the season: radio stations have been sliding holiday favorites into their rotation and our Choir has one set of Christmas concerts already behind us! So in this upcoming broadcast, I have the privilege of sharing some of MY favorite songs that celebrate the season of our Lord’s birth. You won’t want to miss this diverse collection of Christmas favorites such as Good Christian Men Rejoice • Fum, Fum, Fum • The Little Drummer Boy • African Noel • Birthday of a King • The Jesus Gift • Worship Hymn • Rise Up, Shepherds, and Follow • One Small Child • Good News Medley • Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne • O Holy Night • The Carolin’ Reel

December 11 “Christmas Carol Countdown”

Lists are everywhere at this time of year – – and I’m not talking about shopping lists! I’m referring to lists of the TOP 10 or 20 or 50 Christmas Carols. Every form of media seems to have such a ranking – magazines, publishers, radio stations, websites . . . so we combed through several of these to come up with those carols that seemed to be on EVERYONE’s list! And that’s what we’ll hear in this upcoming broadcast, so don’t miss it! The Choir sings Joy to the World • O Come All Ye Faithful • Away in a Manger • Hark the Herald Angels Sing • I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day • It Came Upon a Midnight Clear • Do You Hear W hat I Hear? • Mary, Did You Know? • Hallelujah Chorus • O Holy Night • Silent Night

December 18 “Peace on Earth”

“And suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!” These angelic words give us great assurance and also a challenge: if we want the peace God promises, we must be people on whom His favor rests. Be sure to join us for our look at “Peace on Earth and hear the Choir sing such favorites as Angels’ Carol • Wonderful Peace • When I Look Into Your Holiness • Peace, Peace • It Is Well With My Soul • In the First Light • Trust In The Lord • Rest • Let There Be Peace on Earth • Reach Out, Come Share • I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day

December 25 “Our Musical Christmas Card to YOU!”

Well, Christmas Day will arrive just in time for our next broadcast! Wide-eyed children will be gleefully tearing wrapping paper right and left; and parents… while not so wide-eyed maybe… will be happy and somewhat relieved that everything got done more or less on time! So we invite you to sit back, maybe with a nice cup of holiday coffee or hot chocolate, and enjoy this special broadcast of Christmas music… pretty much without interruption! Consider it “Our Musical Christmas Card to You!” The Choir will share Sing We Now of Christmas • The Twelve Days of Christmas Praise • Mary, Did You Know? • Noel Celebration • Away In a Manger • How Great Our Joy • Such a Small King • In the First Light • Christmas Medley • I Wonder As I Wander • Mary Had a Baby
