Amazing. You really can find anything on the interwebz.

In HS, our choir did an arrangement of Silent Night that I loved. It was beautiful. For some reason, my dad came to our concert and I remember he said it was the best version of SN that he'd ever heard (quite a compliment from dad considering he hated to go to those kinds of things.)

Well, I still remember a bit how it went. It was perfect, mostly because our soloist Laura had one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard, something else my dad also noted.

So I was thinking about it and started messing around with google...and I found it. The arrangement is by Rhonda Polay, and is quite popular (though I've not heard it since HS.)

This girl misses on some parts, but you can get the idea. (With all due respect, I don't think anyone could match how Laura sang it.)

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm feeling verklempt, just like I did when we performed that song and Laura blew the room away.

How about a Joni Mitchell cover?



I wonder if Dan could've got a tighter pair of trousers...?

This is the video Adak linked to in the Macabre Democrats thread. It was hidden. And it's very touching.



WARNING: this video might make you cry. Wow. So beautiful.

I guess each of us has his/her own definition of beautiful.

It isn't youtube because the song isn't there. But it is a wonderful song:
