One of my favorite memories of childhood involving Christmas was a tradition that our family followed on Sunday evenings during Advent. The TV set was turned off, and the house was darkened, except for a solitary lit candle placed in the center of our living room. Mom served a special meal and then read passages from the Bible depicting the birth of Jesus to me, Dad, and my sisters, Kay and Kathy.
We then gathered around the piano and sang the familiar carols that we still love today. Many are included in this album. Mom was responsible for these beautifully quiet times.
This CD is dedicated to her.
