Dive into the heart of PraiseGathering Music Group’s “Three Gifts” Christmas Musical as we unveil the behind-the-scenes magic of its recording. Released in May 2014, this festive musical extravaganza is a creation by the talented trio of Randy Vader, Jay Rouse, and Rose Aspinall.

The narrative revolves around the profound significance of three gifts – gold, frankincense, and myrrh – laid at the feet of the Christ Child, symbolic of royal treasures. However, in “Three Gifts,” the focus shifts to offerings of greater value that we bring to the Lord – our lives, hearts, praises, desires, accomplishments, failures, and unbridled thanksgiving. It is a surrender of our perceived authority to the ultimate Author of life, Jesus Messiah.

Behind the scenes, Randy Vader and Jay Rouse, as producers, along with associate producer Rose Aspinall, orchestrated the recording process, ensuring every note resonates with the vitality and Christmas spirit the musical embodies. The musical is orchestrated by a team of musical virtuosos including Ric Domenico, Richard Kingsmore, Camp Kirkland, Rolin R. Mains, Jay Rouse, and Dave Williamson, enhancing the festive atmosphere with a SATB voicing.

The titles, from the lively “Three Gifts Opening” to the soul-stirring “Tell it on the Mountain,” contribute to the 42-minute performance, a celebration of Christmas joy and reverence. Each piece is a musical testament to the beauty and depth of the season’s meaning.

“Three Gifts” is not merely a musical; it is an exploration of the profound offerings we can present to the divine. As listeners immerse themselves in the recording, they witness the synergy of talent and passion, bringing to life a Christmas musical that transcends tradition, inviting everyone to partake in the joyous celebration of the Savior’s birth.

“Three Gifts”

Description:

A conflict is about to be settled; it is the inexorable battle between the Kingdom of God and the realm of evil. The battle will be waged at a specific time and in a specific place. It is not a clash of provinces; it is a war of principalities. It is the final conflict and it will be fought to the death. A single act of treachery sets the plan into motion. Just thirty pieces of silver for evil to betray unsearchable riches. The weapons of this war are unexpected: broken bread, a crown of thorns, a cross.

It will not be won by a conquering hero. The triumph will come through a kneeling Savior. His victory will look like defeat. But make no mistake, the restoration of humankind is in the balance and no one knows the lengths to which He will go to win us back. Yes, this King will wear a crown, but not the one we expect. He will lay aside His crown of glory for a crown of thorns. The Lord Jesus will give everything and nothing will be spared—except us.
