Christmas

Christmas a studio album with a warm, classic sound used in beautiful arrangements of Holiday favorites. Violins, guitars, soft vocals and drums create a half celebratory, half-lullaby-esque album to listen to during the Christmas season.

Lyrics and Credits

1. The First Noel  
(Traditional Carol, arr. G. Gothard)
Greta Gothard - violin, guitars, vocals 
Willow Gothard - violin 
Solana Gothard - violin, vocals

Lyrics
The first noel the angels did say 
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay 
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep 
On a cold winter's night that was so deep 

CHORUS: Noel, noel, noel noel - born is the king of Israel 

They looked up and saw a star 
Shining in the East beyond them far 
And to the earth it gave great light 
And so it continued both day and night 
CHORUS

Lyrics
Winds through the olive trees softly did blow 
'round little Bethlehem, long long ago 
Sheep on the hillside lay, whiter than snow 
Shepherds were watching them, long long ago 

Then from the happy skies, angels bent low 
Singing their songs of joy, long long ago 
For in a manger bed, cradled we know 
Christ came to Bethlehem, long long ago

Now in the winter night, good folks are waiting 
See now the maid of light, darkness abating 
Symbol of love sublime, moving o'er space and time
