Who was the prophetess Anna (Luke 2:36-38)? What was her complete story? Sharon’s voice added the perfect final touch to this track; it was an absolute delight spending that morning in studio with her.

Delia and I started writing a choral cantata; we’ve only finished two songs thus far because lots of life happened. Maybe someday we’ll be able to complete the larger project. In the meantime, we think this made a dandy uptempo bluegrass carol and a happy note to leave you with. Merry Christmas, everybody!
