Sing of Peace
Sing of Peace is a Christmas album in a beautiful Divine Feminine voice. We sing familiar Christmas carol melodies with new, inclusive lyrics by theologian and minister Rev. Jann Aldredge-Clanton. By including the experiences of women, minorities, and all oppressed people who are not directly referenced in traditional Christmas music, the album reclaims and amplifies the themes of peace, joy, hope, awe, and love that so much of the world associates with the Christmas season.
Using multicultural, biblical, female names and images for the divine, Sing of Peace affirms the sacred value of women throughout the world who continue to suffer from violence and abuse. This Christmas album celebrates the sacredness of all people and all creation. It weaves the magic and mystery of Christmas with urgent cries for justice, an end to suffering, and respect and dignity for all beings.
Sing of Peace creates opportunities for those who fall outside the mainstream Christian tradition to enjoy the music that is so prevalent each December. For those of us involved in the making of this cd, Christmas songs were a happy, often blissful part of our childhood traditions and memories. As we grew older and our spiritual identities continued to evolve, some of the traditional lyrics felt out of sync with our beliefs and hopes for the world. Thank goodness for Jann Aldredge Clanton! She boldly goes where no holiday music has gone before and we are deeply thankful for her vision, courage and light.
