Normally this time of year, I'd be out with the MauthausenGOSPEL! choir performing at Christmas markets. But I don't need to tell you that this is no normal year. Putting together a video seemed like a good way to stay connected and do something together, even when we can't sing in the same room. It was also an opportunity to reminisce with some old clips of Christmas past.
Back in 2004, I wrote and recorded "Yes He Is Born!" (then titled "Silent Night") with my dad on guitar and harmonica. In 2018 I brushed it off and made a new arrangement with parts for the choir to sing. Thanks to Tiziano Capiello for laying down a groovy Keyboard track, mixing the sound, and making it all work with support from Giovanni Blasi on drums and Vladislav Beba on Bass. And of course, it doesn't happen without the singers- thanks so much for your contributions that make this video so fun!
