THE SISTERS - Christmas
Celebrate the Christmas season with this great new yuletide album from the Sisters. Made up of sisters Kim Lord, Heather Day, and Valerie Ruppe, the group members are perhaps better known for their time with their popular family group "The Ruppes." Having begun to sing as a trio, however, their excellent vocal harmonies and the clear synergy of their singing styles bring the new Christmas songs of this album to life. With ten songs celebrating the reason for the season, this project is a great addition to your holiday play list!
"How Do You Welcome A King," is a slow, moving song which asks what gift we could possibly give to the baby Lord of Creation, since everything that is has been created by God. The song says that by worshiping Him and giving a heart full of praise, "that's how you welcome a King." Another stirring song on the album is "She Cries." It speaks to the very human emotions that Mary must have felt, not knowing why she was so blessed as to bear the Christ child. The song features beautiful lyrics and voices over a touching guitar melody.
One of the more upbeat songs on the album is the fun "That Little Baby." With a light country sound and a good beat, this song by Dianne Wilkinson tells the Christmas story clearly and concisely. It tells the story of the birth of Jesus, "That Little Baby," that was and is so very important. Though the song has a light, fun feel, it still has a good message, as do all of the songs on this album. "Come Home," a slower, ballad-like song, talks of how your heart calls you back home to the place where you belong, home with God and surrendered to his will. During the Christmas season, memories of our homes here on Earth and thoughts of our final home in Heaven are especially meaningful.
The spirit of the Christmas season surrounds this album with several songs drawing on traditional holiday favorites and folding portions into the new carols. "Christ Child" draws nostalgic portions from "Oh Come Let Us Adore Him" and the "Hallelujah Chorus" while "The Angels Sang Glory" draws on "Angels We Have Heard On High." This is a beautiful Christmas album that really gives the gift of season's tidings.
