Christmas with The Imperials (1980)

Updated: Mar 9


Christmas with The Imperials is the first Christmas album by the Christian music vocal group The Imperials. Released in the fall of 1980 on DaySpring/Word Records, it was after the success of One More Song for You and before the release of their next album Priority that the group put out a Christmas album. The album is a mix of traditional and new Christmas songs and is produced and arranged by Bergen White. On the original LP version, the tracks "Immanuel" and "O Come All Ye Faithful" were together as one track as a medley. On the CD and digital versions, the medley became two tracks.
