The sacred season of Advent is upon us. And as it is with all sacred things, Advent comes with a complex network of emotion, activity, and understanding of God and self. The songs of Christmas reflect that complexity. We herald the good news of Christ's birth with the angels ("Glory to the newborn King! / Ris'n with healing in His wings!") while simultaneously begging him to return and save us from our present suffering ("...ransom captive Israel / that mourns in lonely exile here.."). It is precisely because these melodies envelope such rich, true, human emotion and experience that we're spending this season exploring them in depth.
