I think it’s really rare to do a Christmas CD that is fresh and new and brings something different to the table. Usually they all kind of start to sound the same with the traditional Christmas carols and one or two originals. Chris Tomlin’s Christmas CD Adore is truly an original and will be one of the all time greats in Christian Christmas music in my opinion.
I think what makes this so unique is that it’s a worship Christmas CD and I haven’t heard this combination before. As I listened to it for the first time it gave me chills over and over again and I thought, wow this is really worshipful. Only later when I read the subtitle of “Christmas Songs of Worship” did I realize that was exactly how he intended it to be. And why not? Christmas is all about Christ’s birth and we will spend eternity worshiping him so why not a Christmas worship CD?
I really like the spin that he put on some Christmas classics while staying true to them enough so that they were still recognizable yet made even better. I think my favorite actually is Adore and only when he got to the chorus did I realize this was a version of “Oh Come Let us Adore Him.” And what an appropriate time of year to remember to do so!
Silent Night is my favorite Christmas song and it’s just a simple, beautiful version. I love the choir in the background that just gives it that churchy worshipful feel. I feel like I’m in a giant cathedral surrounded by people worshiping.
Tomlin just has an incredible voice and it’s one that just reaches deep inside me and makes me want to fall to my knees and worship. He is one of my all time favorites and this CD just jumped to the top of my list. It’s one of those CD’s you can listen to all year without feeling like it’s JUST Christmas music.
Adore is a must have for Chris Tomlin fans and if you aren’t one yet, Adore will make you one! Enter to win a copy below of the perfect stocking stuffer this year!
