Behold The Lamb Of God 2019 recording by Andrew Peterson and Friends – Christmas Songs 2019 Day 1

Christmas Songs starts on December 2 this year.
Now, I know that technically in Church music terms the weeks before Christmas are not meant to be filled with carols, but too bad.
I’m not posting carols in January.
As always, I begin with Andrew Peterson’s Behold The Lamb Of God album, which has been re-recorded and released a month or two ago.
Peterson and friends perform this live year after year, and the re-recording is a wonderful way to hear their familiarity with the songs, with each other, and to mark their growth in skill and maturity as musicians.
It’s available on streaming services; sadly physical media probably won’t be available in Australia until after Christmas, unless you order from overseas.

Here’s the album on YouTube playlist with lyric videos.

Behold The Lamb Of God 2019 – Official Lyric Video

Andrew Peterson’s Behold The Lamb Of God has been re-recorded and re-released.
A beautiful work of musical biblical theology it is my Christmas soundtrack.
It should be available from most Christian retailers in time for December listening.
If you don’t have it it, get it.
If you do have it, you’ll be purchasing this edition anyway.

Here’s the title track, which serves as both introduction and conclusion.
The beginning and the end.

Gather ‘round Ye Children, Come – Christmas Songs 2018

I’m a little late with Christmas Songs this year. It was a big weekend.
But that doesn’t mean this year’s start will be different from any other.
Here’s Gather ‘round Ye Children, Come, the first track on Andrew Peterson’s album Behold The Lamb Of God.
There’s a playlist of the whole album that follows so you can hear the whole thing.
There’s always the chance that someone out there hasn’t heard it, so here it is again.

Labor Of Love – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 15

I’m watching a live-stream of Andrew Peterson and friends performing the Behold The Lamb Of God concert.

What better song to feature today than Labor Of Love.
There are other versions of this on YouTube by other singers, but Peterson’s vocalist of choice is Jill Phillips.
So here it is.

Behold The Lamb Of God by Andrew Peterson – Christmas Songs 2014 Day 1

beholdThe first day of December each year begins my twenty-five day run down of Christmas themed songs. But each December’s songs always starts with Andrew Petersen’s Christmas themed concept album Behold The Lamb Of God.
I’m sure each year new people are discovering this great album.
Peterson and a group of friends perform this as a concert tour each year the in the states, I’d love to attend one sometime, but the concert DVD recording will probably have to do.

Here’s my 2009 post about Behold The Lamb Of God.

Different releases of the album can be purchased here. It’s also available on iTunes.

Now you could trust me and just buy it, or listen to some of these, and then go buy it. It’s up to you.
I’ve put each track here so folk can pick their favourites.
So Long, Moses, Matthew’s Begats, the sublime Labor Of Love.
But just follow them in order.
On youtube you could listen to these as a playlist.
