Phew, what a term! We’re so grateful for your support during these unusual times.
For our last blog of the year we thought we’d give you a little introduction to a few of our team in the form of their favourite Out of the Ark Christmas songs.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year, from all of the staff at Out of the Ark Music!
Director of Publishing
Midnight from Songs For EVERY Christmas
“Working in the Publishing Department, I hear lots and lots of our Christmas songs and am lucky enough to be part of the team that chooses which we publish, so it’s extremely difficult to choose a favourite! But I do love Midnight. It has groove, style and nativity characters galore and I’ve watched many children don their cool sunglasses, practise their finger-clicks and just downright enjoy celebrating Christmas with this song.”
Chief Executive Officer
Child In A Manger Born from Songs For EVERY Christmas
“I love this contemplative song. For me it sums up what Christmas is all about. I’ve heard it sung as a solo by the shaky, nervous voice of a child, and in soaring four-part harmony from Malvern Priory Choir. Each time it’s had a powerful impact on me.”
Junior Marketing & Projects Coordinator
Rock Around The Shops from A Cracking Christmas!
“This song is just guaranteed to get you rockin’ and rollin’ into the Christmas period. It’s also a prime candidate for some exquisite dad dancing!”
Online Marketing & Communications Officer
That First Christmas Day from S!ng Christmas
“I love this song because it captures the awe and wonder at the heart of the Christmas story.”
Digital Marketing Coordinator
O Little Town Of Bethlehem from Out of the Ark Essentials: Christmas Carols
“I love a traditional Christmas carol, there’s nothing better to put me in the Christmas spirit! This one especially reminds me of carol services both when I was younger, and now at my step-daughter’s school.”
Designer and Artworker
Christmas Calypso from Songs For EVERY Christmas
“This song is so upbeat and feel-good! I distinctly remember singing along to it as a child and it really helped me to understand the whole narrative of the nativity, whilst having a good dance dressed as a sheep, too.”
