I Saw Three Worships
Don Moen is a pastor and a noted producer/singer of Christian music records since the mid 1980's. With over 5 million record sales to his name he is a big player in God centred music circles who continues to turn out popular albums of praise today. Don's association with the season dates as far back as 1990 when the simply titled 'Christmas' album was released. Consisting of Christmas carols and other songs of worship not associated with the season like 'Glory To God' and 'I'll Give My Heart' this is an album to be savoured for those who like to keep their celebrations entirely religious in tone. 'Christmas' includes many of the world’s most cherished Christmas carols over its 17 tracks such 'Silent Night', 'Hark The Herald Angels Sing' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful. Unfortunately ‘Christmas’ is currently out of print and is not even available from Don’s own website.
Moan's festive follow-up was 'Emmanuel Has Come' which came out in 1996 and consisted of live recordings of a series of famous Christmas carols. Moan wrote the title track himself for the occasion with the soft Christian pop of 'Emmanuel Has Come' celebrating the birth of Jesus. There was much overlapping between the tracks included on this album and Moan's debut Christmas album but the live setting offers an altogether different nuance to the recordings.
It would be over a decade and a half again before Don returned with a Christmas offering and 'Christmas: A Season of Hope' did not disappoint. This time Moen's Christmas release got a major label release with EMI on board and the album benefitted from a full orchestral backdrop by the Prague Symphony. 'Christmas: A Season of Hope' marked a slight shift in focus for Don with some secular moments on the album such as opening track 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year' and 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' which closed proceedings. Elsewhere it is mostly religious in tone with Don's very own 'Season of Hope' adding a good dose of sincerity and level headed advice to the Christmas celebrations.Author: Kevin
