Splitting time as studio operator, producer and session player for other Vol. 4 artists, the indomitable Andrew Tinker had his hands full before he even began tracking his song. Backed solely by a melancholy French horn, Tinker’s arrangement deftly adheres to E.H. Sears’ timeless “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” without the bombast one typically expects from a classical composition.
Hushed throughout, the song reaches a beautiful crescendo around the three-minute mark, when the horns are quieted, allowing for an unflinching spotlight on the singer’s superb voice.
