For the third day of my 25 days of Christmas music I’ve picked a Sufjan Stevens. I know I had featured one of the tracks off his newest batch of Christmas EP, but for tonight I thought I’d pick “O Come O Come Emmanuel” off of 2001’s Songs for Christmas.
I really love how Steven’s has some of the traditional instrumentation with his now trademark banjo. With his hushed vocals mixed with the classic lyrics to the song, this makes for a Christmas must. And how could anyone celebrate God being with us in the form of Jesus without some banjo anyway.
