9781581822052: Joy to the World: Sacred Christmas Songs Through the Ages

Joy to the World tells the stories behind some of the most wonderful and best-loved songs of the season that express the spiritual sentiments of Christmas. While many other Christmas songs celebrate home and family, romance, and winter weather, the songs whose stories are told here express the underlying reality of the Christmas season between Advent and Epiphany -- the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.

The songs in Joy to the World are among the most enduring and permanent of the season's musical traditions. They have stood the test of time and express the many moods and emotions that evoke the spiritual significance of Christmas. Reflecting many eras and different cultures, Joy to the World reveals their origins, the reasons why they were written, and why they are so beloved. The book is organized into six sections of Christmas songs and carols from the Americas, England and Ireland, France and Spain, Germany and Austria, and Greece and Rome, and classical Christmas music.

About the Author:

George Grant is director of King's Meadow Study Center, editor of the Arx Axiom and Stirling Bridge newsletters, and Professor of Moral Philosophy at Bannockburn College. The author of more than four dozen books in the areas of history, theology, and the arts, he lives near Franklin, Tennessee, with his wife, Karen, and their three children. Gregory Wilbur is an acclaimed composer and director who has received several awards for his orchestral and chamber compositions. Currently he is director of Fine Arts and teaches music, drama, and art history at Franklin Classical School and Professor of Aesthetics at Bannockburn College, both in Franklin, Tennessee. He and his wife, Sophia, live in Middle Tennessee.

From Publishers Weekly:

A more comprehensive guide is Joy to the World: Sacred Christmas Songs Through the Ages, which discusses 57 hymns and classical works. Authors Albert and Shirley Menendez dispute the popular attribution of "Away in a Manger" to Martin Luther, arguing instead that it originated with a group of Pennsylvania Lutherans in the late 19th century.
