In my 15 plus years as music director at Unity of San Luis Obispo, CA I had yearly opportunities to create music for the beautiful and powerful holiday services and programs. Over time I took it upon myself to make these songs more personal and accessible calling upon what the season meant energetically, reflectively, and inspirationally. On Christmas Eve I would unveil a new song that was very like a personal state of the union message…what I learned in the past year, what my intentions were…always tying it to the Christ story, often in a very loose way. These songs were very well received and became the backbone of concerts I would do in late November and December. This CD has many of those creations. They are a in a wide variety of styles and sentiments. Listen and enjoy and expanded, yet personal, view of the Christmas Season as it evolved through my personal window through my time at Unity.
