NEW for Winter 2016 !!!  During this season of giving and thanksgiving we are making available an audio download of our latest song “Another Winter in Beirut (A Refugee’s Lament)” with proceeds going to help refugee families through Heart for Lebanon .  When we (The Braeded Chord) traveled to Beirut this summer, we were touched by the stories of the staff of Heart for Lebanon (many of them refugees themselves) so we brought their stories home in song. Their reality is much harsher than these lyrics could portray, but we hope that this song will give insight to their struggle and move us all to compassion.

…these songs are excellent and some of the most beautiful I’ve heard in a long time. Very, very impressive. The (CD) production quality is also extremely top notch.
