Over the past couple weeks or so, I’ve been able to listen to some of the latest Christmas albums that are out this year. The CD’s listed below are ones that I have enjoyed so far. Those who know me and my musical taste might be surprised by the selection. Nevertheless, I encourage you to purchase all of these wonderful CD’s . . . you won’t be disappointed!

Point of Grace returns with a new Christmas CD. Feature favorites from Christmas Story and last year’s magnificent Winter Wonderland. Features their classic, and dare I say, angelic harmony.
By Point of Grace / Word Entertainment
Although this came out last year, I still highly recommend this CD! I had never heard Point of Grace before listening to this CD, but when I did listen, I was blown away. There are few artists out there whose vocal harmony and singing quality can be called heavenly, and Point of Grace is one of them. The precision is flawless and the blend is seamless. Songs include “Jingle Bells,” “All Is Well,” “Santa Medley,” “Breath of Heaven,” and “Let There Be Light.”
