Vents Magazine Review


“Burns is a couple of years now into the second decade of her recording career and comparing the artistry of this Yuletide themed cover to the inspired energy and lyricism of her 2005 debut is a study in an artistโ€™s evolution. Her ability to bring a vision of traditional music falling more and more by the wayside with each passing year into accord with a modern sheen and a definite personality of its own. Burns, in both her original material and outside songs like this, thoroughly inhabits a lyric. Even the somewhat dated and formal language of this song is no challenge for her and she manages to convey its poetic, devotional quality with atmospheric phrasing and a sense of awe in her voice…Shauna Burns’ interpretation of this track has the sort of quality we expect from artists with an eye to posterity โ€“ sure, they want to entertain, but recording artists this caliber also hope to make music that you’ll keep coming back to for a long time to come. She’s accomplished just that with “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”.”
