Description
Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas tells of the real inspiration, heartache, trials, and faith that inspired 35 great Christmas carols, hymns, and popular songs. From the spiritual heights of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", to the beautiful and haunting newer classic "Mary, Did You Know?" the stories behind these songs will bring new understanding and meaning to each of these holiday classics.

Find out the answers to these questions:
-- What carol owes its existence to an organ that would not play?
-- What occurred in the life of a burned-out, discouraged preacher who had just nurtured his congregation through the bloody years of the Civil War, to move him to pen the gentle lyrics of "O Little Town of Bethlehem"?
-- How is the history of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!" woven with such great names as Charles Wesley, George Whitfield, Felix Mendelssohn, and Johann Gutenberg?

Among the 35 songs included, the reader will be surprised with the moving histories of:
-- Joy to the World
-- Away in a Manger
-- Silent Night
-- Twelve Days of Christmas
-- Go Tell It on the Mountain

The fascinating gems of information revealed in the driving narrative of these stories will continue to enhance the songs' meaning as they are sung for years to come. It is wonderful to realize that the great Christmas hymns and carols and songs are all an outflow of the real reason we celebrate the season -- the love of God expressed to us through Jesus Christ. Each of these classic musical treasures contains a message of peace, hope, and spiritual truth.
