I believe I posted video this last year; but, I can’t find it so I’m reposting it again this Christmas. This modern carol was written and performed by Dr. Jed Santa Maria, a medical doctor specializing in neurology, who is also a wonderfully gifted musician. It is included in his album called “That’s How You Know It’s Christmas,” When I shared my video with him last year, he emailed me to say that he liked it and posted it on his Facebook page.
The images are by the 19th Century artist, James Tissot. Tissot’s early work was devoted to the highly commerical and profitable worldly subjects of his day. He spent the latter part of his career traveling in the Holy Land as background to illustrate the New Testament. The Brooklyn Museum purchased his entire collection entitled “The Life of Christ.” The book, “James Tissot: The Life of Christ” featuring this collection is available at Amazon.com.
