Only a couple more days ’til it’s Christmas — a time of giving and receiving as we celebrates God’s gift of His Son to us once again! This also a time of year filled with all kinds of emotions – from joy to sadness, sentimental thoughts to melancholy musings, it can be pretty up and down. This year, the newly reunited Sixpence None The Richer returned to music with a full-length Christmas album titled The Dawn Of Grace. Now, while I admit it’s not quite the quintessential Sixpence Christmas album we’ve all been waiting for, The Dawn Of Grace is a decent and unique Christmas offering that successfully covers a wide array of emotions, born out of the artists’ own happiness and sorrow. Leigh Nash’s silky smooth vocals make this one especially worth a listen. Personal favorites include the traditionals, like “Silent Night” featuring Jars of Clay’s Dan Haseltine and an added verse the singer wrote himself, as well as “Angels We Have Heard On High” and “Carol Of The Bells.”
Anyone else have this one? Let us know if you recommend it and what your thoughts are on it!
