Dordt Worship recently released a Christmas song called “Free (This Joy),” which is now available on Spotify
The song, a mashup of “Joy to the World” and Life.Church Worship’s “Free (This Joy),”
begins somberly before making a hairpin turn into classic rock and roll. In addition to featuring musician and producer Carey Luce on keyboard, “Free (This Joy)” features many Dordt student musicians including sophomore David Condor, senior Deborah Nogueira Cordeiro, junior Joana Franca Correia, junior Nicole Mahoney, and sophomore Clair Wiart. Director of Production Arts Alex Priore produced the song.
“I love Christmas music,” says Priore. “In fact, I’ve put out Christmas music every year for the past nine years. This year, it was great to make our Christmas music more focused on Dordt students, to highlight their talents and abilities. It was also fun to take a familiar song and introduce something new to it.”
