Video: Some Come to See the Lord
(Email subscribers: Click on the post headline to watch the video at our website.)
Princeton University senior Margaret Craycraft, a Milford (OH) resident, recently filmed this music video for a Christmas carol written by Catholic author Joseph Bottom. Filmed at the Underground Treehouse in Nashville, TN, it features vocals by Mallory Reaves and is set to a 16th-century Swedish melody.
Craycraft is a senior studying visual arts, with a concentration in video and photography. Some Come to See the Lord is one of two songs by Bottom available on iTunes and Amazon as Grace and Gladness: Christmas 2014, from Remodeled Music. (See a video for the other, Joy Will Keep Us, here). “There’s something about Christmas songs that makes them glow,” Bottom wrote of the videos. “Christmas, I suppose, it must be.”
