December 8th – Performance No. 8

Standard

In case you are new here, I am on day eight of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”. For those of you who are not new, please pardon my repetitive opening throughout the course of these 25 days.

Two of my sisters and I love the song “O Holy Night”. After a series of emails with one of my sisters, I came up with the idea of sharing different versions/performances of the song “O Holy Night”.

Welcome to version number eight.

Today’s performer is one of the all time greats, when it comes to singing the holiday classics. I have memories of my Mom playing this album frequently during the holidays.

One of the reasons I love the song “O Holy Night” so much is due to the climatic ‘O Night Divine’ notes. Not every performer who attempts the notes hits the notes, just as not every performer will attempt to hit the notes. Honestly, I tend to prefer the songs where the performer hits the notes; however, this guy – this guy’s voice is like velvet. He need not try to hit climatic notes, because he had me at the first note.

Please enjoy “O Holy Night” sung by Perry Como.

  1. We had some Perry Como too, but I don’t remember playing it very often. This does, though, remind me of Jerry Vale, whose Christmas album we played every year. I think we still have it. Too bad we don’t have a turntable anymore…yet (I’m on the case! 🙂 )

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
