10 Beautifully Blended Musicals for Christmas

10 Beautifully Blended Musicals for Christmas 640x361When we say the word, "blended" in regards to worship music, we're simply speaking of the convergence of traditional and contemporary musical styles. This blending of styles often helps us minister more effectively to a broader audience.

This list showcases some of our best blended musicals for the Christmas season. Take a few minutes to explore these beautiful options that were created stylistically to bring both traditional and contemporary music together for one incredible Christmas experience!
