King of Christmas

King of Christmas

$19.99

Cd

Get ready, get set and GO! Here comes Colin's amazing new album - KING OF CHRISTMAS! Colin follows up his bestselling JESUS ROCKS THE WORLD with this rip-roaring collection of new songs celebrating the joy and wonder of the birth of God's own Son, King Jesus.

With songs like the uplifting 'Happy Happy Day', the rocking 'Merry Merry Christmas', the funky techno 'Glory to God in the Highest' and the hilarious 'No Bells', Colin retells the story of the first Christmas with biblical faithfulness and an irrepressible sense of fun.

KING OF CHRISTMAS is a Christmas album like no other - sure to become a year-round family favourite across Australia!

This 2 CD enhanced edition includes instrumental backing tracks, full sheet music, Colin's hand-drawn colouring book and bonus 'Songs for Christmas' including Colin's original recording of his classic, 'Aussie Jingle Bells'.

"In making this record, I really wanted to take the energy and vibe of "Jesus Rocks the World" into the Christmas realm. In my experience there's a real lack of up-tempo Chrissy songs, so while wanting to accurately reflect the Biblical accounts of Jesus' birth, I also wanted to make an album that jumped out of the speaker and really grooved."

Why look at Jesus' birth?? ". . . Jesus came as Saviour - that's why it was such good news for us sinners. Immanuel - "God with us" - is a name that points to the wonder of God as a baby, one of us, among us. What a humiliation for the Prince of Peace and Lord of Lords - born a helpless baby! And what a wonder that such good news for us could be of such glory to God - he sent a choir of angels to fill the sky to get that message across! I found some great truths about God to share as I read the Scriptures!

The band who played on the album are 4 of the finest session players in Australia. . . and the recording was fast and furious. . . I believe it ought to sound like we had a great time making the record (cos we did!) and that many of the "moments" on the album were truly spontaneous (which they were!)

With this record, I've tried to walk the line of successfully balancing the cultural trappings of Christmas (tinsel, fairy lights and sleigh bells) with the biblical message while wanting to make it all engagingly up-beat. I hope it hits the mark! Cos if you enjoy it and appreciate it, well, I know you'll be a great ambassador for this new Colin CD!

Christmas is a happy time, and my prayer is that this album will do justice to the happy news that to us is born a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, and that He will be your delight amidst the retail flurry and beyond - to the praise of his wonderful Name."
- Colin Buchanan's review for Koorong.

Fabulous!
5 stars By Tracey, Nov 18 2017
A great collection of kids Christmas songs! we loved dancing to them, and having them play non stop in our household. A great CD for primary kids specifically as Colin really does engage listeners in the music.

This CD has been such a blessing to us
5 stars By Liz, Dec 13 2014
Our whole family love this CD - it came out at such a good time for our family as we were struggling to find music that reminded the kids about Jesus at Christmas time rather than Santa Claus and snowmen. 

As with all Colin's music we love it and all of us (including parents) have been so blessed by it but I do think that this one is among his best!

Brilliant Colin
5 stars By Maria, Dec 10 2014
Colin is such a gift to the world! His varied, up beat energetic and fun music and songs pack great theological truths into simple digestible packets that the whole family can enjoy over and over again. This is my absolute favourite children's Christmas CD. Every church's children's ministry will find this a helpful Christmas resource.
