Item description for O Come Emmanuel: A Musical Tour of Daily Readings for Advent and Christmas by Gordon Giles...

This innovative Advent devotional is a musical mystery tour of daily readings for the season, which will help draw readers closer to God through what they sing and hear at this time of year.

Publishers Description

Make Christmas special this year by exploring the legends, message, and theology behind some of your favorite carols and hymns. This book of daily devotions will take you from December 1 to January 6, from the first days of Advent, through Christmas, ending at Epiphany. Each day, Gordon Giles invites you to draw closer to God through spiritual and historical explorations of beloved, familiar music.
As you read and reflect, you will be asked to consider the meaning of some of the famous Christmas carols that we sometimes sing without a passing thought. You will be introduced to obscure saints as well as living poets and musicians of faith, and you will hear the timeless truths of love and forgiveness, pain and loss, darkness and light.
"If, like me, you have always been confused by the imagery of 'The Twelve Days of Christmas, ' you will find this book both compelling and illuminating. Gordon Giles has selected a kaleidoscopic mixture of musical settings of scripture, hymns and carols, from Gibbons to Taize, Plainchant to Kendrick, via Bach, Berlioz, Vaughan Williams, Menotti and many others. He writes with engaging insight and perception, providing us with material for reflection, prayer and meditation."
--John Scott, Organist and Director of Music, St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, New York City

Reviews - What do customers think about O Come Emmanuel: A Musical Tour of Daily Readings for Advent and Christmas?

A new devotional approach  Jan 4, 2008
Each year I purchase a new devotional book for the season of Advent and Christmas. This was one of the most meaningful ones I've ever used, in part because I'm a church musician. The hymn texts were usuallly familiar to me as sung hymns, but the texts and the author's comments were inspiring even without music. I can highly recommend this little book as a companion for personal devotions during the season. It could be used for small group gatherings also.
