Carolyn Arends joined us tonight, and - a long-standing tradition - debuted a brand new Christmas song, "What Kind Of King Is This?" Beautiful. Also first CHRISTMAS PRESENCE this year for CP veteran Leora Cashe, who rocked the house with "Jesus, What A Wonderful Child!" (the one that's on the "Christmas Presence" CD), husband Jaye Krebs on the grand piano. First ever PT appearance for Ruth Gill, who sings with the Vancouver Bach Choir, and regaled us with a glorious "O Holy Night" and played the HT pipe organ for our closer, "Silent Night." Returning from previous nights were Michael Hart, Sheree Plett, Nelson Boschman, Spencer Capier, Becca Robertson, Rick Colhoun and Brett Ziegler. And joining me reading tonight was Trish Pattenden, who you've seen in THE FARNDALE CHRISTMAS as well as her Jessie-nominated turn in LETTICE & LOVAGE - a high point was her take on Mike Mason's brand new "Christmas In July."
