Aaron is, of course, one of America's premier worship leaders/songwriters and this album, originally released in 2014, is in fact Shust's second foray into Christmas music. Recorded with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and produced by the renowned David Hamilton, this set features a masterful reworking of "God Has Come To Earth"; "Bethlehem" which introduces us to another tune for the carol "O Little Town Of Bethlehem"; the choir-laden "Gloria" which exudes emotion; and the title track which takes us on a journey of expectation and celebration. It's still worth checking out, even three years on.

10 Christmas songs from the worship leader recorded with the Prague Philharmonic.
"I love Christmas music and how it so eloquently stamps the season with sound, celebrating the beauty of the earth and the beauty of God's coming to earth, becoming one of His creation, taking on the very nature of a servant so that He could rescue us and reunite us to Himself!
"May this collection of songs take you on a journey with those whom God first invited into His story, the wise men and those lowly shepherds, and may you experience the awe and wonder that is the story of Christmas.
"God is with us - sing hallelujah!" - Aaron Shust.
The first live recording from the Christian music heavyweight singer/songwriter.
