Christmas music permeates the month of December (and sometimes the months before and after). Just turn on the TV or radio, or venture out to a store or restaurant, and you’ll hear someone singing a song of good cheer.
The problem is that it can all become just another bit of noise. That’s why we think it’s important to stop, take a breath, and think about why we sing these songs. When is the last time you thought about the history of “Away in the Manager?” Why was “Silent Night” written? What can we learn today from an ancient song like “O Come O Come Emmaunel”?
Starting on December 2, join us as we share devotionals, history, and facts about the most beloved hymns of the season, brought to you by the Center for Church Music. We’re thrilled that the CCM has allowed us to send you their excellent resources. Sign up today to receive the Classic Christmas Hymns newsletter, and if you enjoy it, visit songsandhymns.org for much more material about seasonal Christian music!
