Here’s a link to my CDBaby profile, where you can find a free download of Silent Night, as I perform it on my album Ornaments.
In 1990, I was doing a sort of Christmas review with Kate Bordeaux and Katy Thomasberg, as "The Collective," an a cappella womens' group. Katy remarked how odd it was to be doing Christmas music since she's a bit of a Pagan. I told her I'd write a song about the Solstice. When I began to struggle, I called upon my sister, Amy (Winkler) Hamm, to come up with the rest of the song, and so "Ornaments" was born.
