In a nutshell, Christian singer and songwriter Paul Baloche's Christmas Worship is exactly what its title claims to be: a collection of (mostly) traditional carols and hymns with worship choruses and cadenzas woven in for maximum effect. Baloche says it "helps to facilitate a 'singing your prayers' style of worship throughout the Christmas season. Featured are the Americana presentation of "Oh Come All Ye Faithful," with its outro "we adore you" that was featured in a PBS special some years back, as well as hymns such as "Angels We Have Heard on High" and "O Come Emmanuel," and a rock & roll take on the carol "Joy to the World," as well as original works, including his wife Susan's "Follow That Star."
