O Holy Night
Adolphe Adam, Arr. Katie Melua & Bob Chilcott
for Alto and Tenor soloists, SATB (with divisions), and guitar
Adolphe Adam's carol, based on Cappeau de Roquemaure's poem and then translated, is here arranged to enhance the appealing simplicity and dramatic swells of the original, drawing on Katie Melua's guitar line from the 'In Winter' recording and creating a sonorous choral texture.
