We have arrived at the end of our musical journey, and there is no better choice with which to grace our ears: the incomparable Céline Dion.

In many parts of the world, Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve, the 24th of December. Traditionally, this includes dinner and company, but what song could describe this day properly? Well the originally titled Cantique de Noël or better known O Holy Night is a strong candidate, and this is therefore my choice.

Written in 1847 by Adolphe Adam, it has been around for a long time. What makes me think so fondly of this is is my time with a certain community band where we would perform concerts at retirement homes. One of the perennial pieces we played was an arrangement of this piece of music that was originally first broadcasted on the radio in 1906 for the first time by a Canadian inventor Reginald Fessenden. A historic moment in innovation, but also of the widespread connectedness of music.

May your Christmas be safe, secure, filled with loved ones and good times. I hope you have enjoyed my journey through the 12 Days of Christmas, and perhaps some day we will come forward with a more modern version, or another theme, but until then; best wishes!
