Todd Agnew anchors one of the more creative Christmas collections I've seen this season. Agnew attempted to visualize the first Christmas from the perspective of the original participants who didn't have our advantage of hindsight. He wrote songs from those perspectives and then recruited a tremendous cast to assist him, featuring Joy Whitlock as the innkeeper, Vince Lichlyter of Jonah33 as Joseph, Christy Nockels of Watermark as Mary, Shelley Jennings as Elizabeth, Mike Weaver of Big Daddy Weave as Simeon, Anthony Evans as an angel, and Michael O'Brien as a shepherd.
The project has thoughtful lyrics and strong vocals. It would make a wonderful Christmas musical because it is so much more than just a random collection of seasonal favorites.
