Our Christmas "Cards"

Last night we finished recording the music for our Christmas CD "card"! We worked primarily on "Mary, Did You Know?", and it is our best yet. We are getting to know our equipment and editing programs as well as just feeling a lot more relaxed about the whole recording process. The combination makes for some happy music. ; )

Here are links to our music if you would like to listen:
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Silent Night
Ubi Caritas

Unfortunately I can't post the link for "Mary, Did You Know" since we are still working out licensing. We want to be careful to be as honest as possible to the original artist. But if you really want to hear it, you can buy a copy of the CD for $5. ; ) E-mail me at benjamin.and.christina at gmail.com if you are interested.

We are planning on signing the CDs with red and green sharpies and sending them out with our family picture (shown above). We were hoping to get them mailed before our trip, but I don't think that will happen. I'm going to aim for right after it, though, so they will still arrive in plenty of time.

"Mary, Did You Know" is one of my very favorite songs. Thanks so much for sharing your talents! It sounded great!

I am sad that we cannot post the others. I was told by a representative that under no circumstances would they ever allow me to record one of them (not Mary Did You Know) because they do not allow publishing of derivative works.

We have obtained permission to record and distribute 100 copies of Mary, Did You Know, but uploading to YouTube is probably not covered under that license. So, if you want to hear that one, you might have to get a CD.

That is a great picture of your family.
I listened to all the music, very lovely. Is this a CD of you and your husband playing?

Yes, this is a recording of the two of us. I am looking forward to adding our son's music to the mix someday! ; )
