My office is never silent
Today I was sitting at work with the radio on and I was struck by the beauty of this song. It is Silent Night, as performed by Manheim Steamroller. And though I have heard it many times, for some reason it just really worked for me today. The melody is so beautiful, the words aren’t missed in this version. And the end is perfect – gorgeous crescendo followed by soft toy piano notes and the sound of wind in the background. Just take a few minutes and listen.
And after that lovely moment out of my day, contemplating the true meaning of Christmas, that schmaltzy gift song by Jim Brickman came on the radio. And I felt like vomiting right there on my desk.
But later, I came upon this and I felt happy again!
