KIRKUS REVIEW

Fifty-four of the well-known and commonly used Christmas hymns and carols have been gathered together in this useful and seasonal book, and the author has supplied a full story of the origin and authorship of each, where it is known, and interesting conjectures where it is not. Now we are sure, for example, that Martin Luther did not write Luther's Cradle Hymn; how men ca to think he did is an interesting story. Such information as is provided here can be used in many ways by choir directors, ministers, and church school teachers to add to the interest of Christmas programs and group discussions. This timely book should meet a seasonal demand.
