    Very interesting history here. Thanks for posting! Inspiring to see how a song by poor and unknown people can be so widely known and loved now.

    Love the backstory. Interesting that this one song launched both a school and a museum (unless his body of work is much greater).

    Craig, I need to get going for work, but I scanned this and it is a lot that I already knew. A few little things were new to me. Yes, this is probably the most famous of the religious type Christmas songs. It is the only one that I knew how to sing in second soprano "by heart."
