Rocking' the Advent
After spending the first Sunday of Advent at a Lessons and Carols in Indianapolis, and preparing to perform in another Lessons and Carols this weekend, it is only fitting that I pass along this announcement from Amazon: from today through Christmas Day, Amazon will be giving away a free mp3. Each day will feature a new song, "hand picked by Amazon MP3 editors" that is appropriate to the holidays. You can treat this as your own musical advent calendar. Today's free song is "Joy To the World" by Casting Crowns, which looks like a Christian Rock group. The press release by Amazon names Tori Amos and Lady Gaga as other artists on the list, and suggests that "traditional classics" will also be included. I'm guessing that I'll end up deleting many of these songs, but I'm willing to give it a try.
