Hillsong We Have A Savior Christmas CD Review and Giveaway

We Have A Savior is the fourth Christmas worship album of Christian contemporary music composed of Christmas songs led by Hillsong Church. Hillsong Church is a Pentecostal mega church affiliated with Australian Christian Churches (the Australian branch of the Assemblies of God) and located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

I have not been acquainted with their music until now. I received We Have A Savior and thought it was very different from other Christmas music I have heard before. This collection of songs were recorded over 2011 and 2012. The first five songs on this album are from their previous Born Is The King Christmas album. There are also two new songs We Have A Savior and Our King Has Come. All other songs on this album are traditional Christmas songs you've heard before.

Hillsong has rearranged these to have a fun twangy folky feel to them. I actually love folk music so I really like the style of this CD and its arrangements. You can hear banjos in Joy To The World and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Emmanuel is a soft sweet song about the Savior. O Holy Night takes a more traditional approach. I really love the song We Have A Savior and love to sing along with it. Hark The Herald Angels Sing has a neat introduction and you can hear a tambourine throughout along with other instruments. This album reminds me of some tree huggin' hippies singing a Christmas songs...but I see nothing wrong with this, being a tree hugger myself. The organic feel is refreshing.
