In case you are new here, I am on day nineteen 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”.
You are enjoying the final ten, folks. Welcome to version number nineteen.
Full disclosure, this guy was not on my original list of performers. His performance is incredible, and he is known for his version. Still, I had not intended on including him. Then, my blogging buddy, Leonore, specifically mentioned his name, letting me know she looked forward to hearing him sing. He is, afterall, one of her favorites. How could I disappoint someone who has such an awesome name? (Even if she does misspell and mispronounce it.)
Born in the mid thirties, we lost him to cancer in 2007. Thankfully, his voice lives on for countless others to hear and appreciate. If you access his website, his singing plays in the background. Absolutely wonderful!
So, today’s version is dedicated to my virtual friend, Leonore (aka As a Linguist). I hope you enjoy listening to Luciano Pavarotti singing “O Holy Night”. I did – again and again and again.
