Hosanna Christmastime is a collection of four original Christmas songs written specifically for Hosanna by song writer and pianist Marlynn Rey, plus a collection of traditional standards with a wide variety of musical styles that will be pleasing to everyone. The album includes two a capella numbers as well as one instrumental. Each song was written or chosen for this album to convey the hope filled message of the birth of Jesus Christ. Hosanna was formed over 14 years ago at Grace Community Church in Tempe, Arizona. We began as sisters in Christ who were called to sing. We developed into a quartet who love to sing for the Lord first, and with each other for the joy of it! Our music styles include gospel, country, jazz, contemporary, traditional and a cappella. Our members include Lauri Wieland, soprano and violist, Giselle Fox, soprano/alto, Julie Thompson, alto/tenor and Chris Hammond, tenor/alto.
