Bill Anderson's Christmas Music Picks

O HOLY NIGHT – I first encountered this carol when I was the bass singer in a barbershop quartet – it was always a showstopper when we performed it. Years later I learned it had been written by a French classical composer named Adolph Adam.

HURON CAROL – I was a Grade 8 student when we took a school trip from Toronto to Sainte Marie Among The Hurons in Midland. It was there I first discovered Canada’s oldest Christmas song written in 1642 by Father Jean de Brebeuf. I’ve loved it ever since.

SILENT NIGHT – I’ve been singing this carol since my kindergarten class at Williamson Road Public School in the Beaches. I have always been fascinated by the story of the carol’s premiere in an Austrian church – the organ had broken so the accompaniment was provided by a guitar. Cool!

Bill Anderson is host of Bill’s Classical Jukebox and Breakfast Classics on The New Classical FM.
