With everything that needed getting done, yesterday seemed to summon another of the whirlwinds that so often ensue as Christmas draws near.
You just want to step out of that whirlwind and find a quiet place.
Especially now that Dec. 23 has turned to Christmas Eve.
Reverent yet thrilling, this version is done as a New Orleans-style dirge with some moody Hammond organ and some terrific gospel voices singing backup.
Five years ago, my friend Rob called this “goosebump-inducing stuff.”
It still is.
Enjoy your holidays, everyone.
