Christmas carols form the soundtrack of the holiday season—and this book considers the “story behind the story” for 40 favorite holiday songs. Even the most familiar carols have a little-known history or some deeper meaning that makes them worthy of contemplation. Christmas Classics—The Story Behind 40 Favorite Carols provides that intriguing information for songs like “Silent Night,” “Joy to the World,” “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and more than three dozen others.
