In case you are new here, I am on day seventeen 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”.
We are down to the final ten, folks. Welcome to version number seventeen.
First, I want to tell you, as I listen to the remaining list of versions, I find myself becoming more and more excited. There is not a bad version in this bunch. Each performance is incredibly moving, at least to me. I hope you enjoy these next few days.
Okay, here we go…
My age, the age of my parents and the age of my siblings make me old school. I had the privilege of being exposed to countless kinds of music, different singers, etc. I’ve enjoyed sharing different versions of “O Holy Night” with you, in part, because it helps me relive memories of my younger years. For instance, today’s performance may appear as random to many, but it reminds me of nights spent watching Hee Haw.
Hailing from Texas, Larry and his brothers were popular in the seventies and eighties. But – make no mistake, they are still around and still able to belt out beautiful songs. Perhaps, after hearing today’s version, you’ll be inspired to get to know them (again).
Please enjoy “O Holy Night” by The Gatlin Brothers.

I love this one, too. Oh, Holy Night is one of my favorite Christmas songs. NIce work, Lenore.
Thank you, K8. Dare I say – it only gets better from here. 🙂
Not to mention … Gatlin Bros? Hot stuff!
I like your way of thinking, MJ. Honestly, I was going to mention something about their looks – their good looks. (smile)
Well, there was never any retinal damage from looking at them, that’s for sure…
Cracking up, here, K8. Nice to know you appreciate the view, too.
I like the Gatlin Brothers, but this version seems kind of slow. Nice, but slow.
Well Lisa, they are getting older. (smile)
Beautifully performed…thanks Gatlin Brothers. I’ve put a night photo of my softly lit angel (outside) on my Face Book – with “O Holy Night” scripted on it. Influences of Lenore~!
P.S. I keep forgetting to add how impressed I am that you are sharing something that has been a bit of a tradition with your sisters. What a great way to highlight it.
Thank you. I know my one sister is enjoying the CD I made for her, which consists of all of these songs. We’re having fun.
I’m so happy to have influenced you, Amy! Your taste is wonderful. (smile) I am glad you liked this performance. I am looking forward to tomorrow’s post. I hope you enjoy a personal favorite of mine.
Oh, YEAH! Love this one!!
Glad you liked it, Patti. Happy Saturday night to you.
