Luciano Pavarotti: Cantique de Noël (1978)

O Holy Night: Luciano Pavarotti [1935–2007; Modena, Italy] sings “Cantique de Noël” at Notre-Dame Basilica, a majestic building which resides in Montreal’s historic district of Vieux-Montréal (Old Montreal), as part of “A Christmas Special with Luciano Pavarotti ” in 1978. This was actually recorded on September 22, 1978. I am Jewish and I love this song, especially when it is performed by one of opera’s greats in my hometown, in the city of my birth. Bravo.
