Editorial Reviews

Jason Gray talks about Christmas Stories: Repeat The Sounding Joy

When I decided to do a Christmas record I wondered what it would be like what kind of Christmas record I could get really excited about? And I thought about a Gray Christmas tradition that involves one of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors: Beyond Words by Frederick Buechner, a kind of dictionary/encyclopedia of religious words and characters that come to new life under Buechner s observant eye.

Every year I pull the book off the shelf and look up each of the characters who make an appearance in the Christmas story, and every year I m so moved by the humanity of these people who find themselves unexpectedly caught up in the middle of The Greatest Story Ever Told.

So I set out to write and record a collection of Christmas songs based on the individual characters in the story. As I got deeper into the story and the characters, though, I found myself in an intense narrative peopled with characters in the midst of great drama and crisis! The young girl who carries the secret of angels; the heartbroken young man whose fiancé is pregnant with another s baby (will he forgive her when it s in his power to ruin her?); the wisemen with their gifts of gold (will they give the child what he desires most, the gift of themselves?); the harried innkeeper so overwhelmed with his work that it s hard for him to recognize the wonder on his doorstep that would make him whole.

Yet there is great joy in the midst of this sober drama, too: the exuberance of the shepherds, wide-eyed and breathless the moment after the angels split the sky with their chorus. They are running into town with Gloria! still ringing in their ears not entirely sure where they re going, but what is there to do but run! to see the newborn King. And of course there is the child himself who will make us children again and heal the world with joy.

Stories surrounding the birth of Christ, written in song, that is sure to inspire you!
Amy
This CD is wonderful - a perfect mix of "traditional" and original Christmas songs, all with unique arrangements and the distinct style of Jason Gray.

I am so tired of listening to the same Christmas music from before Thanksgiving through Christmas that I tuned my radio off of those stations.

I am so tired of listening to the same Christmas music from before Thanksgiving through Christmas that I tuned my radio off of those stations. HOWEVER....this is the best recording of fresh, new, upbeat music I have heard in years and years. Thank you Jason for providing this.

Prime Cuts: Easier (The Song of the Wiseman), Rest (The Song of the Innkeeper), Children Again

How can we say anything fresh about Christmas? With the perennial Christmas albums released each year, almost every angle to articulate something meaningful out of the Christmas story has been exhausted. Thus, a large cadre of contemporary Christian artists have resorted to straddle between the path of nostalgia singing about snowfalls and sleighs and the occasional stroll down the worship direction with a sonic nod to the birth of Christ. Gray could have easily gone that direction and still sell like many of his peers do. But as evident by his Bible-centered testimonial songs inspired by his own life of suffering (Gray has a speech impediment problem), this is not what you would expect from Gray. The coda of the album title 'Repeat the Sounding Joy" is a good indication of the direction of this record. This is a collection of songs about "joy." Joy not because there is an absence of war or disharmony, but joy because the Lord is present in our perilous circumstances. For the 9 originals, Gray tells the story of Christmas from the eyes of the characters of Christmas (Joseph, Mary, the inn keeper, the shepherds, the angels and so forth). And in his re-telling, he shows us how joy is still possible despite the characters' struggles, selfishness, busyness, fears and doubts. Just like well-crafted and Spirit-filled sermons, at the end of the day, these tracks really are more than just about the Christmas characters. They are about us: how the presence of Jesus can truly bring joy in the midst of our struggles and fears.

One thing that is most praiseworthy about this disc is that this is perfect interweaving of Scriptural truths and creativity.

I can't say that I never heard of Jason Gray, but I never had the kind of speed bump in my schedule that made me stop and listen to his music. But THEN!... Every year I look for something new and freshly anointed by the glorious presence of the Holy Spirit and THIS IS IT! It took me hours of searching to find this today, but since I am alone this Christmas (due to illness), I invested in the search. I knew when I found this album that THIS is what I was looking for. I included a couple of songs from Mandisa's new Christmas album, along with some MikesChair and some truly anointed pieces from Bethel Music in my Amazon CloudPlayer playlist & this just brings me to my knees! God bless you, Jason Gray. I keep Christmas till Epiphany, so I will be playing this daily for the next ~2 weeks! Amen!

As a connoisseur of Christmas, and particularly Christian, music, this is one of my favorite albums (Christmas or otherwise). I rarely purchase complete albums, but made an exception for this one because every song is completely unique, well-written, and well-performed and there is a lot of variety in the musical styles. What I love most about this album are the themes and lyrics of each song. It provides a unique depiction of the experience of Christmas from different points of view - the innkeeper, the wisemen, Mary, Joseph, Jesus - that really make you think and examine your own life. And the songs will get stuck in your head - but you won't mind.

You know someone loves a 'seasonal' song when they listen to it out of it's 'season'. I have despised Christmas music my entire life (up til I was a Christian) and even though I like songs that usually are funny like a Bob Rivers Christmas song. This album is breath taking!!!!! My favorite song is "Easier" and I love "Christmas is coming" the melody is so catchy you cannot help but tap your hand to the tune.

Thank You Jason, this is my first Christmas album that I've ever purchased! Highly recommend!

If you are looking for some Christmas music that isn't just remaking some old favorites, check this CD out. Not only are all the songs great, they are new and fresh. There are songs about the birth of Jesus from the perspective of Joseph, the Inn Keeper, and the shepards. Jason Gray does throw in a few classic Christmas songs, but he puts a new twist on them. Overall, this is a very creative and entertaining Christmas CD. I couldn't take it out of my CD player from the time I got it until a couple of weeks after Christmas.

Jason Gray takes familiar songs and makes them his own (sounds like The Voice), but it's true. I get tired of listening to the same songs done the same way. He doesn't do that. And then he mixes in some original stuff and turns it into a story. Most unique Christmas CD I've bought in a long time, and I have quite a collection.
