Excerpt from Under the Holly: Christmas-Tide in Song and Story

F all the old festivals, that of Christmas awakens the strongest and most heartfelt associations. There is a tone of solemn and sacred feeling that blends with our conviviality, and lifts the Spirit to a state of hallowed and elevated enjoyment. The services of the church about this season are extremely tender and in spiring. They dwell on the beautiful story of the origin of our faith, and the pastoral scenes that accompanied its announcement. They gradually increase in fervor and pathos during the season of Advent, until they break forth in full jubilee on the morning that brought peace and good will to men. I do not know a grander effect of music on the moral feelings than to hear the full choir and the pealing organ performing a Christ mas anthem in a cathedral, and filling every part of the vast pile with triumphant harmony.
