about

“The Songs The Season Brings” is a collection of classic and original Christmas songs to help celebrate the holiday season! This new EP from Beta Radio was made in various environments over the two months before Christmas - recorded in the studio, at home in bedrooms, and in closets of family members while drinking egg nog and roasting chestnuts over a George Foreman grill!

We hope these songs will keep you company this Christmas as you're hanging ornaments, calling relatives, strategizing over where best to place mistletoe for that holiday smooch, paying bills, changing diapers, laughing, buying gifts, crying, eating candy bars and everything else the season may bring. Ho! Ho! Ho!

released 29 November 2011
BENJAMIN MABRY sings, plays the guitar, glockenspiel and sleigh bells on this recording. BRENT HOLLOMAN plays the guitar, banjo, church bells and sings. AMANDA HOLLOMAN sings. THEO MILOJEVICH plays drums. ED SUMPTER plays the double bass. MAURA KROPKE plays the violin. ANNA GRIFFITH plays her trumpet. ANDY STANFILL plays his euphonium. Many, many thanks to A LOT OF PEOPLE for helping us sing, hoot and hollar on Song 3.

All songs produced by BETA RADIO. They were recorded in our homes and were all written a really long time ago - except for song 2, which was written in the fall of 2011. Drums recorded at Logan Manor Studio by LEE HESTER. Songs 1, 2 and 3 were mastered by DAN COUTANT at Sun Room Audio. Song 4 wasn't mastered at all because it was recorded on a whim, the night before this album's thanksgiving release, in a closet, on 5 mobile phones (so naturally there wasn't any time for that).

Track Name: O Holy Night
O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
Track Name: The Song the Season Brings
In my heart, I feel how this years end should be
Auld Lang Syne, O Holy Night, by your balsam tree
Your brother may come and stay and my sister on the eve
Of Christmas day, Hallulujah! Play! The song the season brings

Ring your bell now
Hear the swell now
The Christ is come a child our king
On your porch now
Light your torch now
A virgin, blessed, our Lord to bring, oh let it ring!

A love drew near, pointing here where peace would take its pose
To shelter all from a fall where wickedness arose
Oh shining star, from afar, now point me to the grove
Where the Lord the babe in the manger plays
With the ass and the lamb he grows

Ring your bell now
Hear the swell now
The Christ is come a child our king
On your porch now
Light your torch now
A virgin, blessed, our Lord to bring, oh let it ring!

Oh let it ring!
Oh let it ring!
Oh let it ring!
Oh let it ring!

In my heart, in my heart I feel
In my heart, I feel, I feel
In my heart, I only feel
Love, love, love, love

In my heart, in my heart I feel
In my heart, I feel, I feel
In my heart, I only feel
Love, love, love, love

In my heart, in my heart I feel
In my heart, I feel, I feel
In my heart, I only feel

Love, love, love, love
In my heart, in my heart I feel
In my heart, I feel, I feel
In my heart, I only feel
Love, love, love, love

If you're far, come and draw near
Blind and deaf, come see and hear!
There's a joy, there's a sound
Here at Christmas
Oh the Lamb, oh the Lamb of God
Fill the heart with all its not
With the joy and the sound
Sing the song the season brings again!
Track Name: Auld Lang Syne
Should Old Acquaintance be forgot
and never thought upon?
The flames of Love extinguished
and fully past and gone
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold
that loving Breast of thine?
That thou canst never once reflect
On Old lang syne

For auld lang syne my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

Since thoughts of thee doth banish grief
When from thee I am gone
Will not thy presence yield relief
To this sad Heart of mine?
Why doth thy presence me defeat
With excellence divine?
Especially when I reflect
On Old long syne

For auld lang syne my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup
And surely I’ll buy mine
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne
Track Name: The First Noel (Bonus Track)
The First Noel, the Angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay, keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made Heaven and earth of nought
And with his blood mankind has bought
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
