Musical Family - Retired
by Byers Choice
Do you hear what I hear? From strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion, the sounds of these instruments are heard at Christmastime creating the classic songs that we love! Some of our favorite Christmas carols were either written or revised during the Victorian era. The list includes "O Little Town of Bethlehem", "Good Christian Men Rejoice", "Silent Night", "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", "Away in a Manger", "We Three Kings" and "Jingle Bells." We owe the Victorians a debt of gratitude for their contribution to the music that's such an important part of our Christmas celebration today.
