Oh how I love music. I love to have music in our home. I love to have music in the car. I love to have music in my studio. I like to listen to music with meaning and music that speaks to my soul while I work. It really does change the entire art experience for me. The messages, the meaning, the beat… they all speak to me.
It is like inspiration whispering right into my heart. It makes me happy.
And Christmas music… Christmas music is my favorite! Really, it is. Each year I can not wait to bring out all my Christmas music. (Just ask my husband.) I have even been known to break a few out during the year. Yep, that’s me… Christmas music year round. At least a little bit here and there.
I especially enjoy the original, unique songs on Christmas albums. I find many of them are so beautiful and very fitting year round, not only at Christmas time. It is a wonderful way to keep the spirit of this season close to my heart all year long. I love music with a positive message. Music that makes you feel joyful just by listening to it. Music that has the power to change you. With his very first Christmas album, The Heart of Christmas, Matthew West does just that.
It is beautiful and inspiring. Matthew really does capture the heart of Christmas and you can’t help but feel it too. He is an amazing songwriter and this album has many fantastic original songs! He has such a great way of sharing the spirit of Christmas. I love how the songs take you through a journey. Starting with the time approaching Christmas through the day after Christmas. It tells a beautiful Christmas story.
The album starts with a song that each of us, no matter our age, can understand. The anticipation for Christmas to finally come! We are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas and the reason we celebrate. The heart of Christmas. Another song paints a picture of seeing Christmas through Jesus’ point of view. How He left heaven for us.
The album continues with a touching song of a child’s last Christmas. We are also reminded to share Christmas with others, to give Christmas away. The last song is one of my favorites, The Day After Christmas. Reminding us that after Christmas day and all the excitement is over, the light of the world is still here. I think that is such a powerful and beautiful message.
These original songs are surrounded by classic favorites. Matthew West’s joy for Christmas and love of Christ shines throughout this album. It is a wonderful addition to my Christmas music collection! It has kept a song in my heart since I started listening to it. It really is a new favorite of mine. An album that is all about the true meaning of this wonderful season and is so beautiful to listen to… how could it not be a favorite?!
