Every wonder able the true story behind some of the Christmas carols and where they came from. Andrew Gant offers a history of carols and a background on 21favorite carols that are familiar to all. He uses his musical background to help us understand the stories and histories of the music used with the carols

I enjoyed the collection of 21 carols that he chose to write about. Including favorites as Jingle Bells and The Twelve Days of Christmas with many of the traditional church carols. The stories are interesting and how the final version of the carol came about will give a new meaning to the carols.

Andrew offers a copy of the sheet music and verses to each carols to share as we learn more able the carols.

A book packed with information and useful tool to understanding the origin of a part of our history of a holiday celebrated by millions each year. A great book for sharing with family and friends.
