Song of the Month

That Time of Year cover art

This month’s featured song is "It Started in a Manger", a Christmas song I originally wrote in 1982 but heavily revised in 1996, replacing the entire second verse. (See my blog entry, "Story Behind the Song: ‘It Started in a Manger'” for more on the song’s history.) This recording is from my 2006 EP of original Christmas songs, That Time of Year. It is available in popular digital music stores.
