In case you are new here, I am on day 25 of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”.
Day 25 of 25. We are at the end of this book, so to speak.
What book? Wait. Are you new here?
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 the grand finale – numero veinte y cinco.
Did I save the best for last? Well, if you are asking me, then my answer is ‘yes’. However, I realize, you may disagree. I’m quite okay with that possibility.
This gentleman is the grand finale, in part, because this guy’s version is the one my sister introduced to me. Frankly, these past 24 days were built around him. As I listen to his version, while typing, I am moved. Every time I listen to his version, I am moved.
One of my favorite things about his performance is the fact that he takes you there – your emotion, your spirit, your soul – he takes all of you to that moment, and then – then he places you gently back down, with a smile on your face. He finishes what he starts, and I love it.
His voice is known all over Broadway. I am certain I could mention one play, and his name would pop into your head immediately. Well, assuming you follow Broadway musicals. Let’s try it, shall we? “Phantom of the Opera” Do you know of whom I am referring?
I’ll reveal his name in a moment.
Merry Christmas, readers. If you do not celebrate Christmas, happy 5th day of Hanukkah. If you celebrate neither Christmas nor Hanukkah, super Sunday salutations to you! Regardless of your faith, if you joined me on this journey, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed it. I hope the remaining days of December treat you well. Here’s to a wonderful 2012 awaiting all of us.
Now, let the finale begin … Please enjoy Michael Crawford’s version of “O Holy Night”.
Blessings, my Blogosphere Buddies.

This is a great finale. I do follow Broadway musicals and I do love Michael Crawford — and Sarah Brightman. Yay! Your version is doing the trick…one by one my household is getting up this early Christmas morning. Thank you for this “O Holy Night” journey. Now, CA will be calling soon.♥
Thank you for sharing your Christmas morning with me, Georgette. I am grateful you stuck around for the whole 25 days. See you next year! (smile)
NOEL! Oh, how heavenly, Lenore Diane! A wonderful choice for the #1 spot! (Sniffle, sniffle – again!) Following along with your versions has been so delightful – a word I don’t use often and reserve only for the most special things. Opening up your audio link this morning was like opening up a Christmas present – my first one, and one that will help me keep a smile on my face when I open AA Hubby’s gift. 😉 Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! NOEL! NOEL! NOEL!
Oh, I love your excitement and enthusiasm, AA. Thank you for visiting and getting into the moment. I am honored you used the word ‘delightful’ to describe my 25 days of “O Holy Night”. I sincerely appreciate your support. Glad I could give you your first gift and have you enjoy it! Merry Christmas, AA – Noel, Noel, Noel!
A wonderful finale to the series. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Lenore!
Thank you, Jacqueline. Glad you liked it. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
….what a great series!! Thank you 🙂 MJ
You are welcome, MJ. Thank you for listening (again, and again and again!)
This unique voice is the whipped cream, Lenore. Well done – many thanks.
You are very welcome, Amy. I am thankful I had an audience enjoying the show with me.
I listened to this one twice. My oh my! Does this really have to end?
Yay! Twice?! Awesome. I’ll be back again next year. (HA!)
Thanks for adding all this lovely music to my Christmas preparation. What do you have planned for January?
Thank you for listening, PegOLeg. What do I have planned for January? Maybe I’ll try to grab a treadmill at the local gym. (Not!)
Just beautiful, Lenore! Hope you and the family had a lovely Christmas. Enjoy this vacation week!
Thank you, Darla.
Enjoyed these 25 days of “O Holy Night” with you. I’ve heard the name, but was not familiar with Michael Crawford. Good #1, finishing strong!
Thank you so much for taking this journey with me, Patti. I am glad you enjoyed it. And, I am glad you liked the grand finale!
