17 songs for Christmas

A robust collection enabling us to meet the characters of the story as real people rather than two-dimensional stereotypes, embracing the earthiness and the mystery of the Incarnation. So the likely lack of Palestinian snow and the anaemic, docile portrayal of Mary, among other cliches, get exposed and a healthier image of reality engaged. The book has a range of congregational, choral and solo songs. Gutsy and quite unlike any other hymns you’ll sing at Christmas.

Includes Christmas is coming, No wind at the window, Funny kind of night and The aye carol.

A CD recording by the Wild Goose Worship Group featuring all the songs is also available.

My bonnie boy
He became poor
Christmas is coming
Carol of the Advent
No wind at the window
Justice in the womb
And did it happen
Look up and wonder
God immersed in mystery
Funny kind of night
The pedigree
Ma wee bit dearie
Ho ro ho ro
The aye carol
Simeon’s song
Carol of the Epiphany
The refugees
