The Upper Room Book of Christmas Carols

Revised Edition

The Upper Room • August 2004

BUY Print $3.50

Can you imagine Advent and Christmas without the beloved, familiar carols?

Music nurtures the soul, triggers memories, and stirs emotions. Carols seem even more special because they're not sung every day. That creates a problem, though: Who can remember all the verses and arrangements?

With the revised edition of The Upper Room Book of Christmas Carols, you'll never have to hum everything past the first verse (until the chorus) again!

Compact enough to carry or slip into a music folder, this booklet has the words and music to favorite carols in a larger size than the previous best-selling edition. The musical arrangements are singer-friendly and include accompaniment for both guitar and piano.

Featuring an array of beloved seasonal hymns that reflect a diversity of origin, language, and theology, this carol book is perfect for your church members and choir. Suggestions for a special carol service are also included.

Here are some of the carols in this book:

  • "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"
  • "The First Noel"
  • "Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella"
  • "Silent Night, Holy Night"
  • "O Come, All Ye Faithful"
  • "He Is Born" ("Il Est Né")
  • "The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy"
  • "Go, Tell It on the Mountain"
  • and many more

Whether you're a veteran singer or just enjoy making a "joyful noise," The Upper Room Book of Christmas Carols will become a family or congregational treasure you can use every year. Celebrate Christ's birth in song!
