Fall on your knees -- it's a holy night!

eloracElorac on 12/09/2008

trivia quiz A wine merchant, a penniless Parisian, and a liberal clergyman are the ones who give us the beloved song "O Holy NIght." Placide Clappeau, the mayor of southern town in France named Roquemaure, wrote poems as a hobby and wrote the words in 1847.

Adolphe Charles Adam, son of a concert pianist, was a musician and composer himself. He lost everything in a failed musical business venture, but was appointed a professor of music by the Paris Conservatory, a position he held until his death at age 52.

John Dwight was an ordained Unitarian minister working as the director of Brook Farm,a liberal-minded commune. He discovered the French carol "Christian Midnight" and translated it into the English hymn "O Holy Night." Dwight became America's first influential classical music critic. Greatly influenced by the liberal views of Ralph Waldo Emerson, he was an advocate of Transcendentalism.

My father's memories become more vivid as I recall his basso voice soaring over the congregation to heaven itself. May this Christmas bring beautiful memories alive for you.
