Song: Adeste Fideles ( *O Come All Ye Faithful*)

Background Info: The Englishman, John Francis Wade, wrote both the words and the music, Adeste Fideles. The Musical score was first published in 1782 in Samuel Webbe's An Essay on the Church Plain Chant in 1782. John Francis Wade first included it in his own 1751 publication of Cantus Diversi. The lyrics were first published in 1760.

* Christmas By Song *

Song: *Ave Maria*

Background Info: The Ave Maria was composed in about 1825 by Franz Schubert (1797-1828) when he was twenty-eight years old and filled with devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was written for voice and piano and first Published in 1826 as Op 52 no 6. The words most commonly used with Schubert's music are not the words that the composer originally set to music. Franz Schubert actually wrote the music for an excerpt from the poem "The Lady of the Lake" by Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), which was translated into German by Adam Storck. Schubert called his piece Ellens dritter Gesang (Ellen's third song). In this particular excerpt from the poem the heroine, Ellen Douglas, is in hiding and prays to the Virgin Mary.

* Christmas By Song *

Song: *Away In A Manger*

Background Info:

Protestant reformer Martin Luther is considered by some to be the composer of this carol, although without question the modern version comes from nineteenth-century American composer William James Kirkpatrick. The first two verses were by an anonymous author as part of the Little Children’s Book for Schools and Families by J. C. File, and the third verse is by John Thomas McFarland (1851-1913). Credit belongs here.

The first two verses of “Away in a Manger” were originally published in 1885 in a Lutheran schoolbook. James Murray published it in 1887 under the title of “Luther’s Cradle Hymn” leaving some people to think that Luther had written it. No one is certain who wrote the music, but it, too, is believed to be American.

*Did You Know*  Section About Christmas

~ Unbeknownst to many, the word "xmas" was not invented by carnal merchants trying to commercialize Christmas. The word is actually an old English one. The "x" in Christmas is the Greek letter chi, which is the first letter in the Greek word for "Christ." Thus, "xmas" is simply a shortened version of "Christmas." Credit belongs here.
 

~ When you share a kiss under the misletoe, you are partaking in a Norse custom. The Norse associated the misletoe with their Goddess Of Love.

~ Many Americans have poinsettas in their homes, but did you know it is the native flower of Mexico. Mexicans call it the *Flower Of The Holy Night*.

~ The first people to decorate Christmas trees were the Germans in the 7th Century.

~ If you enjoy Candy Canes, you can thank the French. (Don't start throwing them away. They're still tasty!)

~ Since 1923, the White House Christmas Tree has been lit except one year - 1979. To honor the hostages taken in Iran, only the top of the Christmas tree was lit.

~ Pope Julius I in the 4th Century designated the 25th of December to celebrate Christmas.

Song: * Christmas Song *

Background Info: written by Mel Tormé and Robert Wells
first recorded by The Nat King Cole Trio in 1946. Credit belongs here.

Various versions follow below

* Christmas By Song *

Song: Deck The Halls

Background Info: The melody is Welsh and belongs to a winter carol, Nos Galan; the "fa-la-la" refrains were probably originally played on the harp. In the eighteenth century Mozart used the tune to Deck the Halls for a violin and piano duet. J.P. McCaskey is sometimes credited with the lyrics of Deck the Halls but he only edited the Franklin Square Song Collection in which the lyrics were first published. The English words generally sung today are American in origin and date from the 19th century. Some versions say "Deck the Hall" instead of "Deck the Halls". Credit belongs here.

*How About You* Section

Do you have any favorite artists you listen to during the holidays?

Here's some artists MoJo loves during the holidays. How about you?

1. Nat King Cole

2. Hipsters Holiday
- If you love Louis Armstrong, Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, Pearl Bailey and so on, this is the album for you!

3. Choirs --MoJo loves choirs from around the world. There is nothing better than hearing a choir sing *Carol Of The Bells*.

4. Bing Crosby
-- Love his voice!

5. Funny Christmas tunes
--Anything that breaks the monotony of the same old songs is great!

What say you?

Christmas Suite

 

Artist/s:  Julio Angel

Song Title:  Christmas Medley # 1

( The first few selections are called "Aguinaldos."  The reference is a wild flower typical of the Christmas season in the Caribbean but particularly in Puerto Rico. )

( My wife's comment:  "Any Puerto Rican who listens to the medley is going to cry."  I don't know that with any certainty.  However, I would tend to agree with her because they are a bunch of "sentimental ol' fools." )  :-)

 

Side Note:  I won't be translating entire songs.  I simply don't have the time.
