My favorite album regardless of season

"When I first got this CD in 1995, I was in love with it. It is a wonderful blend of contemporary and traditional sounds. But what seals the CD for me is the song "Going Home for Christmas". Instantly I knew I wanted to sing that song the first Christmas following my grandmother's death, and hoped it would be a long time before I got the opportunity. While it does not tell her story, it does sum up her spirit and faith in Jesus Christ. This year I will finally be singing that song. Funny, as I sit here writing the review, listening to the CD, it is playing "Emmanuel" a song of pure worship. Anyway my grandmother died this past August after battling a blood disease for 18 years. Tears would come to my eyes just listening to the song before her death, I can't imagine what it will be like when I try to sing it. This is the power of SCC's music, to evoke emotions and stir the passions toward the King, giving praise, worship and glory to God. This CD will not disapoint."
"Going Home for Christmas"

"My mother, who was ill and had been living with us for four years, died suddenly at our home of a heart attack on Christmas Eve of 1995 while we were all preparing to attend Midnight Mass. So instead of going to a beautiful, joyous Christmas liturgy, my wife and I and our two children ages 5 and 8, found ourselves kneeling and weeping in the little chapel in the hospital where Mom was taken. A few days after the funeral, a friend told me about this album and this particular song, "Going Home for Christmas." I purchased the CD as soon as I could. This song penetrated our grief magically. Once we realized the profound truth in the lyrics - that God had really given Mom the best Christmas present He could - that He brought her home for Christmas - our grief was transformed into joy and gratitude. This song was a powerful catalyst in our healing. And I too, look forward to going home to heaven for Christmas one day. What a homecoming we will share."
