December Peace II ~ Music to Light the World
This second Christmas album was in my mind for a long time, waiting to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the first December Peace album released in Fall 2009. Featuring signature arrangements of Christmas hymns and carols interwoven with original composing, I hope this new collection brings you many of hours of enjoyment. And, I pray the music brings John 14:27 “December Peace” to the hectic, sometimes stressful, holiday season.
