Music Review: Glory in the Highest


Cover of "Glory in the Highest: Christmas...

Cover via Amazon

Chris Tomlin’s Glory in the Highest album is one of his best since And If Our God Is For Us… and Passion: Awakening.

Emotionally moving with the sentiment of the Christmas season – Glory in the Highest conveys the feelings of gratitude and reverence at the birth and ultimate death of Jesus Christ (and when he rose again), that we feel mutually as Christians. It takes a new twist on the Christmas carols of old – bringing a fresh, Contemporary Christian vibe to the mix. It’s upbeat, uplifting, and calming of the spirit.

The album also features the voice talents of Christy Nockels, Matt Redman, and Audrey Assad.

My favorite song of the album would certainly be O, Holy Night, not only due to it’s beautiful composition, but of the message that follows with it.

This album is highly recommended, and may be easily and cheaply obtained in a Christmas Bundle from the 268 Store for those interested.

Included within the album are the songs listed below, which, along with Christmas classics, contains some originals of Chris Tomlin and Ed Cash.

O, Come All Ye Faithful

Angels We Have Heard on High

Emmanuel [Hallowed Manger Ground]

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

My Soul Magnifies the Lord

Joy to the Lord [Unspeakable Joy]

Glory in the Highest

O, Holy Night

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Light of the World

Winter Snow

Born that We May Have Life
