All AboutChristmas Music

We love Christmas music of all kinds!  The elves love to sing carols in the Workshop after all.

Click on the songs below to find fun musical facts about the origins of holiday music and words.  The Techno elf even put a "print button" so you can print a clean copy of the words to share.

And because everyone loves Christmas presents, there may even be some musical downloads and videos to enjoy!  (The elves love silly videos and music, but don't worry, all the videos and music are safe for the whole family.)  Merry Christmas!

Today's Christmas CarolFun Facts!

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
(Fun Facts!)

Walking to church on Christmas morning 1739, Methodist clergyman Charles Wesley was inspired by the ringing bells to write a piece he called 'For Christmas Day'.  It began 'Hark, how all the welkin rings'.  Yuck!  Wesley's poem was changed over the years with a friend, George Whitefield, changing the first line to 'Hark! the herald angels sing'.  Wesley didn't like people changing his words and he also wanted slow and solemn music for them.  But in 1857 William H. Cummings took the changed lyrics and adapted a lively Felix Mendelssohn tune commemorating the Gutenberg printing press to them.  Mendelssohn didn't think his tune was right for sacred lyrics.  Although Wesley and Mendelssohn wouldn't, everyone else seems to like this hymn!
