A Christmas Carol

First line:
Little Star of Bethlehem!
author of text

A Christmas Carol probably dates from Christmas 1894; the poem is Ives’s own and the Berceuse-like rhythm and devotional atmosphere establish parallels with many another carol, such as Warlock’s Balulalow.

A Christmas Carol («Un chant de Noël») date probablement de Noël 1894 et repose sur un poème de Ives; le rythme de berceuse et l’atmosphère dévotionnelle rappellent quantité d’autres carols, comme Balulalow de Warlock.

A Christmas Carol datiert wahrscheinlich von Weihnachten 1894; das Gedicht ist von Ives, und der wiegenliedhafte Rhythmus und die andächtige Atmosphäre erzeugen Parallelen mit vielen anderen Weihnachtsliedern wie etwa Warlocks Balulalow.
