O Holy Night
is classic Christmas with a uniqueness that is Sara Groves.O Holy Night
evokes all that is good, warm and friendly during this special season, showcasing all new recordings as well as four original songs. Produced by Ben Shive
, O Holy Night was originally intended to be an advent album for her family that would consist solely of sacred Christmas songs. When she began working on it, though, she decided to include some of her favourite songs about her family's Christmas traditions.
One such song (one of four originals) is "To Be With You"
, about Groves' family Christmas, a sentimental snapshot of their gathering at her grandma's house. Another is the fun song any parent who's stayed up late on Christmas eve can relate to, "Toy Packaging"
, which mimics how manufacturers twisty-tie and rivet everything to pieces of cardboard, saying, "my self-esteem is in the can, trying to open the robot man."
Among the sacred Christmas songs included, "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear"
and "Go Tell It on the Mountain"
both have personal meanings to Groves; the latter recorded with family and friends gathered around, singing together.www.saragroves.com
