about

A medley of "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear," written by Edmund Sears in 1849 (set to music in 1850 by Richard Storrs Willis) and "O Little Town of Bethlehem," written by Phillips Brooks (set to music by Lewis H. Redner)

First recorded collaboratively in 2019 with Mikaela Gatto, an amazing musician from Berks County, Pennsylvania who happens to be my niece

lyrics

Oh little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by

Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

It came upon a midnight clear
That glorious song of old
Of angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth, goodwill to all
From Heaven’s all-gracious king
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

On a clear night in a small town
On a clear night in a small town
On a clear night in a small town
On a clear night in a small town

Midnight clear
(On a clear night in a small town)
Midnight clear
(On a clear night in a small town)
Midnight clear
(On a clear night in a small town)
Midnight clear
(On a clear night in a small town)
