Kate Essenberg: Heavenly Peace

Simcha Fisher - published on 12/12/12

Remember Kate Essenberg, the immensely talented baker who sent my family a large and gorgeous selection of edible art?  It turns out that this sweet woman’s generosity and talent extend even further:  she’s just come out with a CD of Christmas music, and it is lovely.

heavenly peace

You can check out some samples of the music on this album here.  Kate is the lucid and heartfelt soprano voice you will hear, accompanied by piano, harp, and violin.  There are fourteen songs in all, and my kids and I enjoyed the whole album.

Here’s the kicker:  She is donating 100% of the proceeds to the Savannah Care Center, a crisis pregnancy across the street from an abortion clinic in downtown Savannah. 

CDs are $15 each, plus $4 for shipping.  Kate would be happy to gift wrap a CD and mail it to someone on your list, too.  To order, just email Kate at

Lovely Christmas music to support a pro-life cause — couldn’t be better!
