  • Matt Wright

    I love this album. My favorites are: Et Barn er Født i Bethlehem, Once in Royal David’s City and Barn Jesus i en Krybbe Lå. Where can I get the arrangement for Et Barn er Født i Bethlehem? Because I know that it’s not the original arrangement for this hymn.

  • Barbara Huff

    Is this album no longer available?

    • Geoff Groberg

      We’re working on getting this one and some of our others into iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and other online retailers.

      • Mariah

        Amazon would be perfect! We love A Timeless Christmas and would like an mp3 option.

        • Geoff Groberg

          It should be available in about a week, if not sooner.

  • Deborah Summers

    My daughter was lamenting that her copy of “A Timeless Christmas” was stolen out of her car. Is that album going to be available under that name, or is the list above (Christmas Hymns) the same list of music? I’m trying to get a replacement for her.

    • Geoff Groberg

      Christmas Hymns includes most of the same tracks, re-mastered, from A Timeless Christmas but we weren’t completely satisfied with all of the tracks on the old album (including What is this perfume) and we also wanted to add a few new tracks including Baby Jesus in a Manger Lay and Carol of the Bells.

  • Deborah Summers

    What happened to “What is this perfume?” I love that song!

  • Laura

    Wonderful, just wonderful! Finally something traditional or more like the true meaning of Christmas! Quality and beauty taboot. Love it. Keep up the good work guys!
