About the Carols

O Little Town of Bethlehem
Bishop Phillips Brooks (1835-1903) wrote the words in Philadelphia in 1868. He was recalling his trip to the Holy Land three years earlier, especially the view of Bethlehem from the hills of Palestine at night. His church organist, Lewis Redner (1831-1908) wrote the music for the Sunday school children's choir.
