If you’re at all familiar with Elizabeth Mitchell and her traditional brand of folk music then hearing the words “Elizabeth Mitchell” and “Christmas album” in the same sentence probably makes you very, very happy.
When I was asked if I’d like to listen to Elizabeth’s new album The Sounding Joy, I couldn’t imagine turning down the opportunity. I remember thinking, “Oh my goodness I hope she does Silent Night.” I was not disappointed!
This acoustic album features classic songs like Silent Night (my favorite) and The First Noel, plus many songs you’ve probably never heard of before, like Sing-a-Lamb (featuring Dan Zanes) or The Blessings of Mary.
All of the songs, drawn from Ruth Crawford Seeger’s 1953 songbook American Folk Songs for Christmas, are very traditional and celebrate the birth of baby Jesus or follow the story of Mary and Joseph. These are the types of songs that make Christmas special and this album is absolutely perfect for family get togethers or to listen to while decorating the Christmas tree!
