Day 8 of Operation Christmas Music

leave a comment »

Today’s Christmas song is “Gloria (Angles We Have Heard On High)” by A Jesus Church. This is a church out of Portland that, like so many other churches this time of year, has put out a Christmas album. The difference is that collection of musicians and producers have been doing some of the best work in the more underground Christian music world for years. This version of the song, for example, has the best take of the traditional “Gloooo-ooo-ooo-ooooo-ooo-oooo-ria” part of that song that I’ve ever heard. If interesting and creative takes on the classics aren’t your thing, this is definitely worth downloading for the original songs on the rest of the album.

Personal preference scale: 9 out of 10. It’s Christmas music for the misfit toys like me ;). Holly Jolly scale: 5 out of 10. You’d be easily forgiven for hearing these songs (especially the originals) and not thinking they were from a Christmas album.
