I Wish You & Your Families A Very Merry Christmas & A Healthy Happy New Year! The Nativity scene at 5:48 my Aunt Jeannie Made For Me A Long Time Ago!! Cherish It!! And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. Luke 2:9-12 God Bless Love & Hugs, Susan ~The History Of The Song Ave Maria~ Ava Maria is really the way of addressing the Virgin Mary, as the Angel Gabriel did when he foretold Jesus' birth: "Hail thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women." Luke 1:28 Ave Maria has been set to music many times, but probably the most famous version was written by Franz Schubert (1797-1828). This simple, moving piece, so universally known and loved, was written about 1825 (the composer was twenty-eight years old) as part of a setting of songs from Walter Scott's "Lady of the Lake." According to Schubert, his first audience of friends was surprised at the deeply devotional character of the "Ave Maria": "I think the reason for this is that I never force myself into devotion or compose hymns or prayers unless I am truly overpowered by the feeling; that alone is true devotion." When Schubert died his friend, read a poetical farewell: "May peace at last be with you! Angel-pure soul! In the full bloom of Youth, The stroke of Death has seized you And extinguished the pure light within you!" Ave maria Maiden mild! Oh, listen to a maidens prayer For thou canst hear amid the wild tis thou, tis thou canst save amid dispair We slumber safely till the morrow Though weve by man outcast reviled Oh, maiden, see a maidens sorrow Oh, mother, hear a suppliant child! Ave maria Ave maria, gratia plena Maria, gratia plena Maria, gratia plena Ave, ave dominus Dominus tecum The murky caverns air so heavy Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled Oh, maiden, hear a maiden pleadin Oh, mother, hear a suppliant child Ave maria Ave maria O Holy Night Lyrics The words and lyrics of the old carol 'O Holy Night' were written by Placide Cappeau de Roquemaure in 1847. Cappeau was a wine seller by trade but was asked by the parish priest to write a poem for Christmas. He obliged and wrote the beautiful words of the hymn. He then realised that it should have music to accompany the words and he approached his friend Adolphe Charles Adams(1803-1856). He agreed and the music for the poem was therefore composed by Adolphe Charles Adams. Adolphe had attended the Paris conservatoire and forged a brilliant career as a composer. It was translated into English by John Sullivan Dwight (1812-1893). Our grateful thanks goes to Eric Halstead for giving his kind permission to play his self sequenced midi file of this superb piano rendition of this Christmas Carol. O Holy Night Lyrics Christmas Carol Lyrics Pause Music! O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born; O night, O Holy Night , O night divine! O night, O Holy Night , O night divine! Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming, Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land. The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; In...
