Wait with Me: Advent of the Promised Son
Artist/Band: Susan Bailey
Singer/songwriter Susan Bailey describes her second CD in this way: " 'Wait with Me" is a collection of songs, presented simply and quietly to reflect the true nature of the Advent season. It represents my journey as I seek to quiet my soul and prepare to receive Jesus again this Christmas in my heart. It is hoped that these songs will help you in your preparation as well, and will lead you to a deeper spiritual experience this Christmas."

If you want new music for your Christmas Eve service
By NICK ALEXANDER (Milford, CT United States) -
I'm going to say something that most people wouldn't dare to--I recommend the purchase of this entire CD on the basis of one song. Not that the other songs aren't worth it, they are. But the one song, "Promised Son" is such a hit with the church that I sang it for, Christmas Eve two years ago. The whole church listened in raptured silence as I performed a cover of Susan Bailey's song. It was immediately accepted as part of the official Christmas canon, even though nobody has heard of indie artist Susan Bailey.
Promised Son is just one cut in this entirely wonderful album, a mainstay in my Christmas collection (even tho it's more for Advent). This gives the Christmas music an added boost, as it reminds you of the time you're in... celebrating the anticipation of the Birth of Jesus, and giving new dimensions to the holiday cheer.
If you want your Christmas Eve service to be different from the same old, same old, and have fantastic new songs, this album is for you.

This cd of Susan's brought the meaning of advent back to myself and my family. The music is just so beautiful and really reminds me of what this is about. Susan has a way like no one else to invoke the Holy Spirit. I have never been so touched by music for advent as this cd......thanks so much
Some people's voices just evoke a holiday feel. Susan has such a voice. This album of originals, a few well-known carols and a couple of covers is Susan's best effort to date. Focusing on advent also gives this album a different feel than most, particularly with a focus on Mary's role. Very nicely done.

I loved Susan's music from the moment I popped Wait with Me into the CD player in my car. The combination of Advent favorites such as Susan's treatment of O Holy Night and heart-filled original compositions makes this a treat for the Advent season. I hope that you and your families will enjoy Susan Bailey and her talents as much as my own family has!(read the full interview at CatholicMom.com; click on "Music" and look for Susan's name

"I just had to write to tell you how much I am (we are) enjoying your Advent CD. I am so tired of the usual holiday stuff, and so not in the mood for it. But then I put on your CD, and it helps me get in touch with the true meaning of Christmas, and what this season is all about. Thank you for sharing your gift of music in such a special way."
