Free Download – O Come, O Come Emmanuel

Well, I just finished a little Christmas single of my own. O Come, O Come Emmanuel has always been one of my favorite Christmas tunes, so I thought I’d record my own low-budget rendition and offer it here for free. Hey, I’m a sucker for freebies just like the next guy. So, here it is. Hope you enjoy. Share it with a friend.

    Hey Josh,

    I love the new song! I thought I would tell you what immediately came into the heads of Dana and me as we listened. (I don't know whether or not you meant this or intended any of this to come across, but it did with us).

    As you know, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is the quintessential Advent hymn, and the season of Advent is not only a time of anticipation for the celebration of Christ's birth, but it is also a time of repentance and reflection as we longingly wait for the second Advent of Christ at the end of time. With this in mind, the bits of odd sound effects reminded us of the constant state of strife, war, sin, and hardship in this world. The relatively stable dynamics and tempo as well as the dissonances kept us on the edge of our seats as we were longing for a resolution, a climax, a joyous change. But these things won't completely come until Christ returns again to set up his kingdom in the new heavens and the new earth.

    So, as we wait for that second Advent, we celebrate this first one as it leads to Christ's birth. Let us rejoice as we celebrate the way Christ humbly came into this world to be our salvation and the way that he promises to be with us, Emmanuel, until he returns.

    Once again, I don't know if you meant this, but that's what we got.
