From Loreena McKennitt’s 1995 album “A Winter Garden”, available for listening in full here.

This is my hands down favorite version of this carol. The whole album, while short, is excellent in my opinion. It’s been in my collection since its year of release, when I got it as a free sample over a hard, snowy, and lonely winter. With my family a thousands miles away, it was a nice touch of warmth over an otherwise depressing holiday. I am never feel alone when I listen to it. :-)

Happy Holidays!
