Story Behind The Song

Biography

From their inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the understated beauty of the trio’s 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul (Curb), helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today. Their discography has significantly re-popularized the church’s greatest songs while decorating the popular group with numerous Dove Awards, number one ... Read more in Amazon's Selah Store

Nicol Smith (who later became Nicol Sponberg), Todd Smith and Allan Hall made up Selah at the time this album was recorded. I knew nothing about this trio when I bought this album. All three of them are wonderful singers and each gets a chance to sing lead. The songs are a mix of originals and covers but all of them focus on the religious aspects of Christmas - you won't find Santa, reindeer or snowflakes here.

Silent night, O come o come Emmanuel, What child is this and O holy night are just distinctive enough to make them interesting, but no attempt has been made to do anything too clever with them.

Dolly Parton guests as duet singer on Once upon a Christmas, a song that she wrote for the Christmas album she did with Kenny Rogers in 1984. It was the title track and I think it is one of the best songs of its kind ever written. Dolly sang harmony (with Linda Ronstadt and Neil Young) on Emmylou's original version of Light of the stable, also covered here.

Those are the only songs that I'd come across before, though Rose of Bethlehem, written in 1992, may also be a cover. This stirring song, sung by Nicol, provides a brilliant climax to a stunning Christmas album. Nicol also sings lead on What child is this, Joy and O holy night. From hearing these four songs, it comes as no surprise to learn that Nicol has recorded solo as well as with the men in Selah.

Dove-award winning SELAH offers another powerful album in their third project, ROSE OF BETHLEHEM. Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, this project emits the happiness and hope of Christmas through the words of the songs, filling the listeners with excitement and anticipation. Featuring traditional songs ("Silent Night") as well as lesser-known ones ("Light of the Stable") and a guest appearance by Dolly Parton ("Once Upon A Christmas"), ROSE OF BETHLEHEM offers something for everyone.
Sacred was the birth in a stable, and sacred is the mood of many of the songs, including "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," "What Child is This," "O Holy Night," "Mystery," and "Rose of Bethlehem." These songs are soft, yet powerful and awe-inspiring.
Lead singer Nicol Smith's arrangement of "What Child Is This" conveys the incredible message hidden in the words of the song. The strength of Nicol's vocals does not hinder her ability to provide a gentle, silky smooth rendition. This is also evident in "O Holy Night," which begins softly and pastorally--as if one were sitting alone on a hillside, watching the stars--but quickly escalates into a powerful worship song. "Mystery" captures the debt of gratitude we feel for-and the incomprehensibility of-God's plan, carried out through a baby, to offer salvation to the world. It's not just a baby in a manger--it's the fact that the baby was sent here for *us*; in the words of the song, sung powerfully by co-writer Todd Smith, it's a "Mystery, how He came / to be a man / But greater still / How His death was in His plan."
"Noel" is a fun, light song that provides the Christmas message in Kituba, the language the brother-and-sister part of the trio, Todd and Nicol Smith, spoke while growing up in South Africa.

My husband and I are still listening to this CD even though it's March! We haven't grown tired of the beautiful melodies and words. It is truly glorifying to the Lord!

This album is just perfect just as perfect as Be Still My Soul & Press On. It was just what you would expect from Selah, beautifully arranged, a pleasure to listen to and we are not even close to Christmas yet. I am waiting with bated breath for anything else they release.

This latest offering by the sibling duo is another jewel in the crown of Great Christmas Albums. From the beautiful duet of Silent Night to the inclusion of Dolly Parton on her own Once Upon A Christmas, this album spans they years of time and the talents of many of the Christian World's best song writers. The album as a true treasure in it's simplicity and message of the birth of our Lord. I love their rendition of O Come,O Come Emmanuel as well as the very soulful song Mystery. This album is definitely on my newest "Best Christmas Album" especially for Christmas Eve when the family gets together to remember the blessed night.

I sent for 3 CD's of Selah recently. I hadn't heard of them before but the recommendations made me curious. Well I am overjoyed to put it mildly!! Over Christmas I did not stop playing Rose of Bethlehem, it is so beautiful. In fact I haven't stopped playing all 3 CD's since. I have had a beautiful Scottish Christmas and will be sending for more Selah CD's shortly.

I own all the Selah albums and this is one of my favorite two. (Bless the Broken Road is my other) I listen to it all year long. It's too great to put away for 11 months of the year. The last three tracks are by far my favorite. With their beautiful vocals and stiring lyrics you get goose bumps in the middle of the summer.

I've only listened to this CD once. The only part I was not too fond of was the song with Dolly Parton; the style just didn't seem to fit with the rest of the music.
I look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus with this lovely music after Thanksgiving.
