Advent Calendar – December 21 – Christmas Music

We played Christmas music on the radio and sang carols at church.  I like many of them but this one that I heard on the radio is the only one that brings tears to my eyes.  Not a carol but a Christmas song.

  1. I've heard the story before, but never this song. It brought tears to my eyes as well. A perfect song for a season of hope in these years of war.

  2. Lovely, and I think it did actually happen. Did you catch the musical reference to "The Minstrel Boy"? ("The minstrel boy to the war has gone, in the ranks of death you will find him, his father's sword he has girded on, and his wild harp hung behind him…")

  3. christine, it did really happen in 1914, WW1. i'll have to listen again to hear the reference you speak of.
