A Christmas Album worth hearing: Laura Pattillo – Oh Holy Night
Here’s a wonderful new album by singer Laura Pattillo to start your Christmas season off right. The arrangements are by Kurt Bestor, and the combination is gorgeous. I wanted to know a little more about her, so I asked her how she’d describe herself:
“I’m the mother of 5 crazy children. I live in Kennewick, Washington–the desert side of the state. I married the world’s most wonderful man (sorry ladies!). I studied music for several years at BYU, but marriage put a stop to that. I eventually finished an online degree through BYU in Creative Writing and have added children’s author to my list of hobbies. I’m an opera-singing farm-girl, and I’m always busy.”
Laura included my “And His Name Shall Be Called Wonderful” on the album. The intro and interludes have the “For Unto Us a Child is Born” motif included in them, which is very cool. The sheet music isn’t currently available–I’ll let you know if that changes. (Edit: Ha! It did… see this update.)
I’m just sitting here enjoying this whole album tonight as I post this… and feeling very Christmassy. 🙂
So very lovely. Thank you.
