This original version of the classic Christmas carol is arranged, performed, and produced exclusively by Morgan G Farris.
When I decided I wanted to release a Christmas EP, I knew I had to include this song. The first time I paid attention to it I was a kid and, oddly enough, it was while watching Home Alone. That boy’s choir singing it in the background as Kevin buys groceries alone in his town affected me in ways that have stuck with me all my life. Then sometime in my early teens, I attended a boars head festival at Epiphany and yet again, a choir sang the song over me from the mezzanine of the sanctuary. It’s one of those rare songs that truly captures the magnitude, wonder, and awe of the story of Christmas.
So here is my take on the timeless classic. Merry Christmas!
