Silent Night (Alt blues) - Mark Laurent. I'm not much into Christmas Carols, but Silent Night has always been my favourite. However it's a romantic & totally fanciful song. Giving birth in a smelly stable in the middle of the night in a strange town with no friends around and uninvited strangers turning up at all hours would be anything but silent, calm and heavenly. So here's a version that I think might touch a little closer to Mary & Joseph's reality. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

Pania - Auckland Street Choir (a song by Mark Laurent) Some of you know I've been involved with Auckland Street Choir for a few years. We had our 6th birthday party the other night (though I've only been part of things about half that long) and we were jamming on whatever anyone wanted to sing. Someone asked for my song Pania, and Sandra Eriksen videoed it. It's an honour for me that these guys choose to sing this song - one that several members particularly relate to. They bring added wairua to it. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz

My Friends Are Dying - Mark Laurent. In 1986 I did an album called Kindness In A Strong City. I was "on a mission from God". :-) Sometimes you don't know when you hit your peak until long after you've passed it. After 35 years this is still the album that has the longest tail - the one people talk & write to me about all the time, and I'm really grateful that they do. Technically it wasn't my best album, but it mattered. A lot of my friends from the 90s onwards won't have even heard the songs off Kindness, as, being very Jesus-centric, they're not the usual fair for pubs or folk clubs. I was around & close to a lot of young people who got too deeply into drugs in the early 70s - I wrote this for them, and a few get mentioned in the lyrics. The title, My Friends Are Dying, comes from a Ray Comfort book of the same name. http://www.marklaurent.co.nz
