One new Christmas CD that I have really been enjoying is Love>>>Begotten produced by local music collaborative Pageant Music. Singer/songwriter
Love>>>Begotten begins with the original song “Just a Single Season” which will soon be offered as a free My Morning Download from
17th Century carol “The Burning Babe” is up next with the unique presentation and arrangement of
Hiram, Matt, and David return with “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” and a very jazzed up, loungy version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” Loungy, but without the cheese. Then it’s the pleasantly organic sound of Trash and Glory again with “Christmas Pines.” “The Coventry Carol” is up next from Clair Battle. “The First Noel” is a real treat from
The CD closes out as the entire group joins together for “Of the Father’s Love Begotten” from which the album gets its name.
Head on over to Hiram's website to purchase this CD, and pick up a copy of last year’s release, Word>>>Flesh while you’re at it. Copies of the CD are available at a few local/Central PA retailers, including Central PA Borders locations, and will soon be available for download on iTunes (hopefully by the end of this week, so check back often!)
And if you want, Hiram will be playing some of his music and promoting the CD around the area over the next few weeks. He'll be at the Borders in Harrisburg on Sat., 12/13 at 1pm, and then at the York Borders that same day at 4pm.
Then on Saturday, December 20th, there will be a full Love >>> Begotten concert at Wheatland Presbyterian Church in Lancaster at 7pm. A great way to prepare yourself for Christmas!

Several months ago I blogged about all the cool stuff going on at Building Character in Lancaster. And now the guys at BC are doing even bigger and better things. This Friday, December 5, Lancaster will have its monthly First Friday celebration and Building Character will be unveiling its new artMARKET. This new area is just the latest addition to BC, focusing on the visual arts, with a space for music: the artMARKET Assembly. That area will provide space for live music, rehearsals, recording, performance art, or whatever you can think of.
