Immediately, the listener hears the exceptional acoustic signature and well-matched harmonies which make this collaboration stand up. The strength in Knapp’s voice is given an added flavor with Becker’s contributions. In this collection there is a new strength in the joy, praise, and hope of Christmas.

Highlighted by solid acoustic guitar composition, this Christmas collection starts strong out of the gates with “Go Tell It On the Mountain”. Knapp’s vocals give this standard new strength. Becker’s lead vocals shine in “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”. This version displays delicacy with a great arrangement highlighted by strong bass undertones.

The jazz chords are outstanding in this rendition of “The First Noel”, nothing short of excellent! Throughout the collection there is great harmony and wonderful arrangement showing new life. With strength in voice and simplicity in melody, “O Come All Ye Faithful” provides more than a Christmas standard; it provides direction and focus as the lyrics were always intended to.

Here is unparalleled harmony, arrangement and acoustic simplicity. Here is beauty, artistry and discovery. Here is love, joy and praise.!
