Album Notes
As musicians with varied backgrounds in pop, rock, jazz, classical and music theatre, the music performed by Friends & Family is likewise diverse. From covers of current Christian songs, to contemporary arrangements of classic hymns, the group is just as likely to resurrect socially conscious music from the 1960’s, or find spiritual significance in the music of the Broadway stage. NOEL is the second album of Christmas music recorded by Frinds & Family. This collection includes unique arrangements of sacred Christmas favorites and new songs not often heard, but brought to life through the creativity of the band.

What began as four members of the Faust family and three friends occasionally performing contemporary Christian music has evolved into a band which performs more than 50 times each year.  Friends & Family is now the “house” praise band at Centenary United Methodist Church in Mankato, MN, leading music at the 10:45 “contemporary” service nearly every week of the year.

There are six regular members of Friends & Family, but over twenty-five different musicians have performed with the group, bringing great diversity and creativity to the music of Friends & Family.

New arrangements plus a few surprises!
Start with loving and gentle new arrangements of beloved songs of the season, add some contemporary Christmas titles, and stir in a surprising variety of instrumental styles. This stellar ensemble takes us along on their Christmas musical journey, and closes by featuring a young childrens choir, and a seasoned handbell ensemble accompanying a madrigal-like closer. Be prepared for a restful and inspiring trip!
