Did you know that “Jingle Bells” was the first song to be sung in outer space? Or that “Good King Wenceslaus” was never intended for Christmas?
Whether ancient or new, the Christmas songs we find so familiar have fascinating histories, origins and stories connected with them. THE ANNOTATED CHRISTMAS SONG BOOK invites you to learn more about these much loved holiday classics and to see them in a new light. Whether it be traditional favorites such as “What Child Is This”, “The Coventry Carol” or “Silent Night”, or contemporary hits such as “Merry Christmas Baby”, “My Grown Up Christmas List” or “We Need a Little Christmas”; every song has a story.
Presented in the majestic Sanctuary of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, this event is hosted by Reed McColm and features musical performances by the Andy Northrup Trio, Frank Burgess, Kelly Collins, Tom Edwards, Linda Grass, Pat Thompson, Andrea Trueman, Cindi Zuby and Ria Busink performing on the magnificent Casavant organ, THE ANNOTATED CHRISTMAS SONG BOOK offers a unique and entertaining evening of music, laughter and unexpected discovery.
THE ANNOTATED CHRISTMAS SONG BOOK is a fundraiser for arts programming at Holy Trinity Anglican Church
