Light Of The Stable

Emmylou Harris

Emmylou Harris has a breathtaking voice—literally. Her voice is all about air. The way she breathes in before dropping a note or the way one breaks off as she comes up for air. She can sing just about anything and make it sound like her heart is breaking and the end is near. Christmas songs are another matter. The slower songs work best (“Away in a Manger,” “The First Noel”). “Silent Night” takes on new life as Harris locates its tranquil center. Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Neil Young join her.
