The REVERE journey continues this holiday season with REVERE: Christmas, bringing the spirit of reverential worship into this important time in the Christian calendar. This is our first ever Christmas in a worldwide lockdown. We do not have the usual opportunities for grand celebrations. Once again, the message and heart of REVERE seems timely and divinely purposed.
The seed for this project was sown when we recorded REVERE: Live, back in February, when Thrive Worship’s Charmaine Wells went into a spontaneous moment of singing out “O Come Let Us Adore Him”. We decided there and then to do a Christmas project, and to do it with Thrive!
REVERE: Christmas includes classics like Paul Baloche’s “Joy to the World / Our God Saves” as well as a new song “Glory Hallelujah” written by Mark Alan Schoolmeesters and Brazilian Worship Leader, Gabriel Guedes. This year, when we are forced to take a step back and reimagine how we celebrate the birth of Christ, REVERE: Christmas gives us permission to bow down humbly and simply, and give our Saviour the heartfelt worship he deserves. Now is the time for soothing and emotional melodies wrapped in simple musical arrangements and vocal harmonies.
