Christmas Eve Silence

Christmas Music 2016There is only one song I can imagine playing today. Here are two versions of Silent Night- the first is a traditional arrangement sung by choirs of Luther College in 2014. The second is in combination with Daniel Cantor’s “Night of Silence”, a quodlibet (piece written to be sung simultaneously with another) composed in 1981 and sung here by the Birralee Voices, a children’s choir from Brisbane, Australia. I heard this piece for the first time last year and fell completely in love with it. You can read the text here.
