Merry Christmas

2011 - O How Joyfully / O Du Fröhliche

The text of “O Du Fröhliche” was written by Johannes Daniel Falk nearly two hundred years ago. It's a very popular Christmas carol in German-speaking Europe. The melody, on the other hand, is considerably older and originates with a Latin hymn about Mary, which isn't directly related to Christmas. But I came to know it as a Christmas tune, so a Christmas tune it is.
