TWO NEW Christmas songs from industry vets Building 429!
"A Thrill of Hope (O Holy Night/Agnus Dei)"
"Birthday of a King"
Jason Roy on "A Thrill of Hope"
It’s always a challenge to record a standard like “O Holy Night” or “Agnus Dei.” There are so many amazing versions that already exist, but I had been working on a version of both songs together for years and couldn’t ever get it right. Those two songs are some of my all-time favorites so it was incredibly important that whatever we added to the pantheon of versions of both songs would be at the least interesting and, hopefully, incredibly powerful. Until this year I was sure we would never record either of them, much less put them together, but we finally landed on something that we thought was special. I hope fans of Christmas and worship music alike enjoy this new version of two amazing classics.
Jason on "Birthday of a King"
When the idea was tossed to me to record “Birthday of a King,” I honestly didn’t even remember the song. After listening to it I realized that it was a standard that I had sung since my choir days in elementary school. Then it amazed me that no one had ever tried to record it in a modern format. I love this song and I LOVE “Extravagant.” When we were working on a bridge for “Birthday of a King,” I happened to hum the song “Extravagant” and it dawned on me that they were perfect together! We hope our fans love it as much as we do!!
