The title of this Christmas collection, Along the Road to Bethlehem, is meant to paint a vivid picture. It is a canvas upon which is placed a splendid mixture of rich traditional carols combined with a more contemporary sound experience. Road implies passage and procession. Iter and via imply not only physical movement, but spiritual movement and growth as well - a becoming experience, as it were. This particular path leads not only "to" but "from" Bethlehem. The road is travelled by poor and rich, weak and strong, humble and proud, young and old. It is along this road that discoveries are made, connections are fashioned, and truth is found.
