Christmas Music Countdown - #3

For the rest of the countdown - see here!

Number Three is perhaps the sweetest of all Christmas carols - "Silent Night". There are many wonderful versions out there, but none stirs the soul like the rendition performed by Méav Ní Mhaolchatha (then of Celtic Woman) and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt (still with Celtic Woman). Méav's voice along with Máiréad's violin is haunting, and she actually sings it in Gaelic first before singing in English. Her voice is truly that of an angel and no one will be able to convince me otherwise. Enjoy!
