No. 6 on The 2012 Christmas Countdown - From The Civil Wars Comes Elegance & Grace at Christmas

This Duo Changes Everything you ever thought about  the singing of a traditional Christmas hymn. The Civil Wars, comprised of singer-songwriters Joy Williams and John Paul White, have not been around very long, but, have made an impression on fans and critics alike. The band won a Grammy shortly after release of their 2011 album Barton Hollow. Unfortunately for us, the band decided to call it quits in November of this year due to ""internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition".
Be that as it may, they left us with some pretty amazing music, including today's composition, taken from Isaiah 7:14, of one of the most hauntingly reverent versions of  O Come O Come Emmanuel Ever Recorded - by The Civil Wars - No. 6 on The 2012 XMAS Countdown.
And to make your Thursday a nicer day, please enjoy  one of the most interesting Indie bands around today - Bonus Track No. 7 - All That I Want by The Weepies.
Nothing Says Merry Christmas Like Music for The Soul
