In All The Way To Bethlehem, we listen in to a drama told through many voices, all of them resounding with wonder. There is Joseph, puzzled by circumstances, daunted by responsibilities, yet resolutely determined to do the right thing; Elisabeth, Mary's much older cousin who also miraculously conceives a child, the compassionate but overburdened Innkeeper, who reluctantly tells the young couple, "You cannot stay here."; the Star of Bethlehem, beaming with its own importance, and, always and eternally, Mary, herself, who, while accepting the awful divine destiny of her newborn son, must in those first tender moments with him, marvel, rejoice and dream as any mother would. It is a triumphant story vividly told. Kyle Cantrell of SiriusXM Radio's Bluegrass Junction called the album "a masterpiece."
