Review/Giveaway - One Silent Night : an FFH Christmas

FFH (Far From Home) has long been one of my favorite Christian music groups.  I have always enjoyed their unique pop sound and style.  I hadn't realized they'd released a Christmas album in October, until I was offered the chance to review its downloaded version.

 

One Silent Night: An FFH Christmas is a wonderful collection of classic Christmas music and newly written music by the husband/wife team of Jeromy and Jennifer Diebler.  This album includes several of my favorite Christmas songs, as well as 4 original FFH songs.  I like that they bring their own style to the classics without totally changing the familiar songs.  They're still my favorite songs, with an FFH flavor.

 

One Silent Night tracks:

1  Baby, It's Cold Outside
2  Jingle Bell Rock
3  One Silent Night (original FFH song)
4  I'll Be Home For Christmas
5  The Birthday of the King (original FFH song)
6  O Come, O Come Emmanuel
7  Winter Wonderland
8  Glorious Impossible (original FFH song)
9  O Little Town of Bethlehem
10  Heaven And Nature Sing (original FFH song)

 

It really is a beautiful album, perfect to play at family gatherings, and while setting up the Christmas tree.  Our family is pleased to add it to our Christmas collection! I have to admit that I think I prefer their excellent renditions of my old favorites more than the new Christmas songs, but their original song, Glorious Impossible, is really beautiful.  I love the message in its poetic lyrics.

  4. Two new things I learned: The reality of what the tour life put them through. That Jeromy has MS. What beautiful honest story they share on their bio page. It shows the many ways our Lord ministers to us. God bless the family and FFH.
