instrumental. I am absolutely in love with string instruments and the Celtic Woman
are stunningly beautiful. I love the sights, sounds and fragrances of the Christmas season including cinnamon, pines, and fresh cookies baking for the excited little ones waiting for Santa

"O Holy Night" is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) written by a wine merchant and poet, Placide Cappeau (1808-1877). In both the French original and the English version of the carol, as well as many other languages, the text reflects on the birth of Jesus and on humanity's redemption. The song was premiered in Roquemaure in 1847 by the opera singer Emily Laurey. Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight, editor of Dwight's Journal of Music, translated the song into English lyrics in 1855.
