Every year another flood of Christmas releases come out and this EP from the popular Colorado-based duo missed our attention until now. Producer Brad Wright gives a professional sheen to this set of Yuletide evergreens and the interplay between Elissa and Rebecca Leander voices is never less than attractive. By far the most interesting track here is "My Heart Is Alive (Start Of A Bright Day)" penned by the girls themselves while the least interesting is a dull version of "O Little Town Of Bethlehem". On the whole though, pretty reasonable.

Product Description
Co-produced by The Sonflowerz and Brad Nyght, 'Beautiful Miracle' offers three original songs, classic renditions and features the international award-winning Veronika String Quartet.
"Our vision for this project is to celebrate the purpose of God bringing His Son into the world," Elissa Leander says. "We love the classic songs that draw us to ponder the mystery of the manger and Christ's birth in Bethlehem. But if we stop pondering there we'll miss the reason of His birth - to give His life as a ransom for many."
