Sometimes the familiar begins to sound new.

Last weekend my sister was excited when she heard Josh Groban’s version of O Holy Night for the first time this holiday season as we drove to our shopping destination. It’s a stirring rendition.

Yesterday as I walked home from the PATH station in the afternoon I noticed the church bells were playing O Holy Night and it was filling the air with such a pleasant atmosphere. So rousing.

Earlier this week I wiped tears from my eyes as Il Divo performed its version of O Holy Night on The Oprah Winfrey Show. I subsequently went out and purchased the CD today.

O Holy Night has never sounded so fresh.
