Program Description

Event Details

Learn the differences between a Christmas Carol and a Christmas Song and we examine who wrote the lyrics and melodies, why they were written, and what they really mean. Using audio and video, Barbara Barrett shares which Christmas carols and songs are forms of worship, educational tools, secular entertainment, forms of protest, political commentary, or outright marketing gimmicks. Discover the artists whose recordings transformed Christmas carols and songs into Billboard hits also will be featured. Come and explore music for “the most wonderful time of the year!”

Barbara will be presenting in the library, please join us in the library or on Zoom.
