Christmas carols are very familiar in their traditional tunes.  The Patmos Book of Carols is a project to bring well-known carols to new audiences, using engaging music with catchy tunes, both old and new. Why? Many carols encapsulate the Christmas message in a simple yet powerful way: the Good News of Jesus addresses the problem of human brokenness, our fractured lives, in a perhaps surprising way and promises a much better future...

The first verse of Hark! the herald angels sing sets out the goal of God's mission: reconciliation; the second verse is about the unexpected way in which God implements that rescue mission: His Son, Jesus, born as a baby boy; and the third verse is the result of that mission - the sure hope of resurrection life. Many people don't know what Christmas is really all about. Patmos Carols tell the Christmas message in a new way.
