One of the things that makes Christmas such a memorable time of year is the music. The same songs, year after year, get stuck in our heads and we can often recite the words without even thinking about it. Christmas carols even today are an integral part of any christmas celebrations. As we compile some of the most famous christmas carols, we bring to you a lot of nostalgic memories for sure . Go on to find out which of your favourite song made it to the list.

1. Away In A Manger

Away in a manger is a popular christmas song that was first published in the late nineteenth century. The christmas carol is very popular in the US but also sung in almost all parts of the world during December. This song talk about a baby Jesus proclaiming his birth to the world. Jesus Christ although born in a manger goes on to rule the world. This song is a must for any carol service.

2. Little Drummer Boy

The Little Drummer Boy,” originally known as “Carol of the Drum,” is a popular Christmas song written by the American classical music composer/teacher Katherine K. Davis in 1941. It was recorded 1955 by the Trapp Family Singers and further popularized by a 1958 recording by the Harry Simeone Chorale.

3. Hark The Herald

Many of the carols we sing have a rich theological tradition, and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!” is no exception. It was written by Charles Wesley, who was an English Methodist leader and hymn writer. Forwell over two hundred years, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” has been a Gospel-saturated anthem pointing people to the Savior. This famed carol is loaded with rich theology.

4. Oh! Come All Ye Faithful

The text to the Carol O Come All Ye Faithful was originally written in Latin (Adeste Fideles) and was intended to be a hymn, it is attributed to John Wade, an Englishman. The music to O Come All Ye Faithful was composed by fellow Englishman John Reading in the early 1700s.

5. Silent Night

Music stimulates human emotions such as happiness and hope. But when it comes to understanding why some songs have lasted while others have disappeared, we also need to remember that music and people need each other. “Silent Night,” like no other carol, conquered the world not only because it gave us a message of hope. But also because we carried it forward.

6. Joy To The World

“Joy to the World” is a famous Christmas hymn with lyrics by Isaac Watts. As of the late 20th century, “Joy to the World” was the most-published Christmas hymn in North America. This hymn is a “joyous” celebration of the sovereignty of God and the gift of Jesus.

7. The First Noel

Carols

Although no Christmas season would be complete without the melodious singing of this tuneful carol, very little is known about its origin. It is believed to have had its rise in France during the fifteenth century. Noel is a French word originating from Latin meaning “birthday.” The song is thought to have been brought across the channel to England before 1823 by the wandering troubadours. The carol under the English form, “Nowell,” became a great favorite for Christmas Eve.

 

8. Little Town of Bethlehem

 

Following a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Rector Phillips Brooks wrote the text to this hymn after he was inspired by the view of Bethlehem from the hills of Palestine. Three years later in 1871, his church organist Lewis Redner wrote the melody for the local Sunday school children’s choir.
