Enrico Caruso, "Cantique de Noel" ("O Holy Night")

The legendary tenor sings my second most loved carol (for my favorite, see here). The quality of this 1916 recording amazes me.

Warmest wishes of the season to all. Thanks to tomfroekjaer for the clip.


  1. I agreed with Once in Royal last year, but this year's pick, not so much. CHeck out this one; it's in my top two:

    You can't meet the pipe organ and descant!

  2. I meant to say BEAT the pipe organ and descant!

  3. Thanks, Stephanie. That's a great song. The descant is spine-chilling.
