My Christmas Love Songs weekend series ends with one of my favorites. The lyrics were written in 1944 by Frank Pooler who was the choir director of Karen and Richard Carpenter at California State University. Richard Carpenter composed the music for this beloved Christmas ballad recorded by another American Treasure.
As a young girl, I listened to The Carpenters and loved Karen Carpenter’s voice. When I received the Artist Support Grant from the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis to record my first Christmas album, I had to include one of Karen’s classic Christmas songs. This was one of the first songs on my list to record in my 1st Christmas album.
Though I’m not attempting to sound like Karen Carpenter, I am performing this song the same way as the original recording. Sit back, relax, enjoy! This song is also featured on Julie-Ann Joy’s 2020 Christmas Playlist.
