Stories Behind Christmas Carols, Hymns, and Worship Songs

Multi-published author and longtime music director Dr. Lindsay Terry joins Jeanne Dennis to discuss what events led writers to produce such wonderful music as “Silent Night,” the songs in Handel’s Messiah (e.g., “Hallelujah Chorus,” “For Unto Us a Child is Born”), “More Precious Than Silver,” and “It Is Well with My Soul.”

Terry’s books include: I Could Sing of Your Love Forever: Stories Behind 100 of the World’s Most Popular Worship Songs; The Sacrifice of Praise: Stories Behind the Greatest Praise and Worship Songs of All Time; and Stories Behind 50 Southern Gospel Favorites.

Dr. Terry and his wife, Marilyn, also co-authored a book about Christmas carols for children entitled A Carol Is Born: Stories Behind the Carols, which is featured on this show.
