I’ve heard some say that the soundtrack of the Christmas season is by Mariah Carey, but I would heartily disagree. For me and my house, we long ago chose Phil Wickham as go-to Christmas crooner. His first Christmas album—Songs for Christmas—still holds up years later, and like a Christmas gift you didn’t ask for but totally needed, Wickham has released a second Christmas collection, humbly titled Christmas.
Christmas is not a subtle album. It is what what is claims to be: a Christmas album. What makes it special is two basic things: Phil Wickham and Phil Wickham. His voice is incredible—I can’t emphasize that enough—but also, his instrumentation and arrangement of these traditional carols is awesome. These two elements combine to create an album that is perfect both for decorating the tree with the kids or sitting quietly in front of the fireplace.
See for yourself, and check out this acoustic version of my favorite song on the album, “This Year for Christmas.”
“Joy to the World (Joyful, Joyful)”
“This Year for Christmas”
“What Child Is This?”
“We Wish You (A Merry, Peaceful, Wonderful Christmas)”
