My dear St. Agnes family,
This year we celebrate the feast of the birth of our Lord and the feast of the Holy Family on consecutive days.  I’m sending you the lists of the music for both feasts along with links to recordings ahead of time as you prepare for this Holy Day week/weekend.  I’ve included the original studio recording of Night of Silence/Silent Night.  I had the privilege of playing classical guitar on this recording.  I also acknowledge the fact that many of us mourn the loss of loved ones during this time of year.  Therefore I’ve added another recording at the end of this email of The Sweetest Gift, written by my friend and co writer of One Bread, One Cup, Craig Aven.  Craig is featured on this recording with The Piano Guys.

Wishing you all a very safe, healthy, and blessed Christmas!
Bobby Fisher, Director of Music Ministries
