“We really wanted to make an album that truly reflected us, to recreate a mood, that magical state of mind that Holy Christmas is able to instill in us,” Andrea, who’s also dad to son Amos, an engineer and musician who contributed his piano skills to the record, told PEOPLE. “I hope that the serenity and joy that constantly marked each moment of our work together comes through in every note sung.”
