Mid-Week Music: O Holy Night

Last week Bookworm Bethie commented that one of her favorite Christmas songs is to be “O Holy Night”. I think “O Holy Night” is one of the most beautiful Christmas songs, and it’s one that I really enjoy playing on the piano every year. My version, using an alternate title “Cantique de Noel”, comes from an old book, Christmas at the Piano, and is arranged by Eric Steiner. It’s a very nice version, very clean, with a nice wavelike feel in the bass/lefthand.

I found another arrangement on youtube, and it’s quite beautiful:

I thoroughly enjoy playing Christmas music on the piano (and now, as a percussionist in a community band too). It’s part of Christmas tradition for me. How about you? Do you like making music during the holidays?
