Pianist Garth Smith gained popularity among music lovers for his sensitive and moving original arrangements of LDS hymns. He now shares his signature style with the Christmas classic “O Holy Night” in his lovely new music video. We see Smith performing in a beautifully decorated home, interspersed with magnificent still pictures from the video production “The Nativity” – retelling the birth story of Jesus Christ.
“My wish was to provide a new ‘O Holy Night’ version with a twist on the classic meters, at the same time maintaining the reverential and worshipful nature of the original music.
I envision someone, late on Christmas Eve, putting the last present under the tree, relaxing on the couch, looking at the lights – just taking in the spirit of the moment while listening to this piece. My hope is to inspire a peaceful and spiritual connection to the REAL reason behind the Christmas season…the celebration of the birth of the Savior on that holiest of nights.”
