Interview with Paul Baloche on 'Christmas Worship'

See also

For veteran worship leader, singer, songwriter and New Jersey native Paul Baloche a Christmas album was long overdue.

Baloche who has been in the Christian contemporary scene since 1992 has worked with some of the most prestigious Christian artists, and his songs have been performed by the who's who of Christian music.

Baloche’s focus has always been on making worship music for the church as a whole, so it is no surprise that his songs rank among the most-performed songs in services according to Christian Copyright Licensing International.

Following the recent release of Paul Baloche’s first Christmas album “Christmas Worship,” Baloche took time out to answer some of the questions I had for him.

Read below as he talks about worship, recording “Christmas Worship,” the joy of being a grandparent and his favorite Christmas tradition.

ME: Why title the album “Christmas Worship?”

PB: Because that's essentially what the album is. The primary intention of the album was to serve the local church: worship pastors, worship teams, and local congregations, by combining classic Christmas carols with vertical “choruses” to help keep a sense of worship throughout the Christmas season. Of course anyone can listen to the project and hopefully be inspired to worship with these songs that were written primarily from the church for the church. Most of the Christmas carols we sing such as “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” were written by ministers and were meant to be sung in the context of Sunday morning worship.
