Story Behind the Song

What if Bach wrote O Holy Night? Then THIS angel would have to sing it.

O Holy Night has graced Christmas for 170 years since its inception. It has earned a place among the greatest carols of all time. But such fame can breed vapid familiarity. 170 years of airtime can acclimate the ear so much that we may not feel the Holiness of O Holy Night as perhaps we once did. Unless, perhaps, its transcendent lyrics were cast into a new mold? A mold created by, none other than, J.S. Bach.

We hope this unity of O Holy Night’s lyrics and Ave Maria’s melody opens your ears and heart to the inspiration woven into each line of its immortal meaning:

“Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth…
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn...
O Night Divine! When Christ was born.”

Some subjects are so sacred that it takes an extraordinarily gifted and virtuous person to perform them properly — in a way that is so authentically radiant that as we listen it draws out the light inherent in each and every one of us.

Presenting the precocious, the radiant, earth angel, 15-year-old, Lexi Walker -- an incomparable voice attached to an inimitable heart.

We filmed this video in the middle of the night on tour between two shows at Tuacahn. The stars shone brightly, the river flowed peacefully and we simply let the stillness of the night do the performing for us. Merry Christmas no matter the time of year or circumstances that brought you to this piece!
