“He appeared and the soul felt its worth.”

My arrangement of the French religious song by Adolphe Adam.

Again, preferring silence to constant motion.

I’ll confess that I was not inclined to record this piece. My husband Alan really wanted it included on The Rebirth of Light, but I resisted because I had first heard it sung by a soprano with super-warbly vibrato. I thought the song was sort of tacky, although I did recognize that the tackiness came from the singing and not from the music itself.

When I explained all this to Alan, he pointed out that any arrangement I created would never be “tacky” and that it wouldn’t have warbly vibrato either!

I promised to play with it and just hear what I could create. I started with a sort of American Methodist hymnal 4–part chordal arrangement. And then the rolled chords appeared and away I went!

Lyrical, spacious, spiritual. Suitable for use in church.

“utter silence ... powerfully stilling”
“One final note re O Holy Night, the only meaningful commentary that I could offer after experiencing your arrangement was utter silence. It is the most powerfully stilling arrangement of that piece that I've ever experienced. Thank you!!!”
