If you're itching to welcome in the yuletide with Christmas carols, a new album released by the friars of the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. might just hold the holiday tune you've been searching for.
From traditional classics such as Away in a Manger, Silent Night, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, the Dominicans of the Eastern Province have released their Christmas album Christ Was Born to Save, available on CD or for digital download on iTunes.
"All the music on this album flows from our prayerful contemplation of this great mystery: that God became man to save us from ourselves, and make us more like him," wrote Fr. Gabriel Gillen, OP in a statement from the Dominican Foundation.
The Dominican House of Studies isn't new to the music business – they have produced three other albums over the years, including In Medio Ecclesiae: Music for the New Evangelization, Ave Maria: Dominican Chant for the Immaculate Conception, and Gaudeamus: Celebrating 800 Years of Dominican Life.
