The acapella rendition of the carol that Diamond Rio brought us in 2007 was one of the highlights of the Christmas season that year. The guys of Diamond Rio put little pieces of themselves into that song and we all benefitted.

Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night bring together sounds that you wouldn't normally associate with Christmas, or even each other, by mixing hard-hitting guitar licks with horns and a pipe organ on their version of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." They even mix in "O Come All Ye Faithful," for some added umph. The result is strikingly beautiful.
