Beloved Christmas carols: There’s a song in the air — 7 Comments

  1. I love this song, and have been looking up information on it. The author is always listed as J.G. Holland But I have found at least 4 claims to the authorship of the music. They are all quite similar. The one most often mentioned is actually written several years after the Carol was published in other books. Interesting.

  2. I love the version of this song found in the Heavenly Highway Hymns. It’s in a minor key and sounds very somber… almost spooky. All I can find on youtube is some dumb other version that sounds like a nursery rhyme.

  3. I grew up learning this song but in the last 50 years it has not been sung in churches or even printed in hymnals. I cannot find it in any published in the last 50 years . WHy is that so? If it is so beloved (I love it), Why is it not on recordings, cd’s, videos, etc?

    • It’s in the 1989 edition of the United Methodist hymnal, at least. There are some videos on YouTube. But it’s not as well known as it once was. Thanks for stopping by.
