“To ask when I first heard Silent Night is like asking ‘When did you first breath
in and out?’ ”
What a lovely interview and recording we had with the amazing Joss Stone! Calling herself a real christmas addict, it was a pure joy listening to her thoughts and jokes at the Germano Studios in New York, where she also recorded a Silent Night version for the movie!
“Silent Night transcends the lyrics, it
transcends the music. The whole vibe
of the song... it’s the melody!”
It starts quietly with a solo singer of the ViennaBoys Choir then the Mozarteum Orchestra, Kelly and the whole Vienna Boys Choir set in one by one and show us that this simple song can have a lot of power!
Orchestrated by the fantastic William Ross!
“Silent Night is deeply linked with
christianity, but to me the song
belongs to humanity!”
A definite highlight of the movie! Anggun enchants the audience with two wonderful versions of Silent Night both acoustic in french and orchestrated by Rob Eckland in Indonesian.
