"McCullough noted in his talk last year that Churchill had never heard "Little
Town of Bethlehem," a carol authored by clergyman Phillips Brooks in the 1860s,
until the morning following his joint appearance with Roosevelt, when he
attended a Christmas service with the president."That is kind of
strange because "O Little Town" was published in "The English Hymnal" (used by
the Anglican Church) in 1906, new edition 1933, and also in "The Oxford Book of
Carols" in 1928. It was sung to a different tune, "Forest Green", but
nonetheless it was known in England.
This man changed my life and instilled a passion for history...I love the
writings of David McCullough and look forward to reading his lastest and
watching the video...if only Jimmy Carter had the wisdom and leadership of
Churchill who asked all to turn their christmas lights on...Carter told everyone
to turn their Christmas lights out...people who lead do matter.
I wish I could buy this book in an eBook format. I was at the concert and Mr.
McCullough and Ms. Cole were wonderful.
Good timing on the book and fond memories of Larry Miller. NO matter how the
election goes this winter we need Christ's influence felt this winter as never
before except that war.
