Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful)
There can be no doubt that over the many years that have flown by, memories of Christmas time or Yule will be fully in flow by the time we edge closer to the end of November, with that in mind Rick Sparks has manifested something truly memorable and quite breath taking with his latest release Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful).
Those extra special chord changes that only Sparks can do are in there, as is a sense of mystery and wonder, the ethereal and angelic harmonies cry out over the arrangement, bringing a full flavour of musical richness at this emotive time of year.
Sparks is a master of laid back vibes, but here he not only produces an epic version of a well-known hymn of the day, which would later translate itself into the world of Christmas carolling, but a version so soothing and heartfelt.
Rick is a creative genius for manifesting tracks that have such a calming mood, and his skill set of creating atmospheric music is utterly sublime, this is a composition that would warm any household at this time of year, and the lead up to the big day, and a sure fire holiday hit must surely be on the cards for Rick Sparks and Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful), and what a fine Christmas present that would be for the musician.
This track is also an advance single release from Ricks 2024 album Angeline, so that is something to look forward to.
