New for Christmas 2020: Dominium Christmas

I love Christmas music. As a minister’s sonĀ I grew up with the words and the melodies of church hymns and sacred music punctuating the years of my youth. Perhaps my purpose in making this album is to bring that early love of sacred music to the present, to take elements of what is familiar and present them in less-familiar contexts so we can experience them anew.
