O Holy Night!
Masterworks of Christmas PoetryBook - 1995
Gathered from twenty-eight centuries, ten languages, and sixty-four authors, here is a uniquely diverse and yet wondrously harmonious collection of voices that have joined in praise for the newborn Savior.Indeed, O Holy Night! is the broadest anthology of Christmas poetry ever collected in English.For years, poet Johann Moser searched through hard-to-find works to unearth forgotten treasures of Nativity poetry. Now he brings together these undeservedly obscure masterpieces with familiar favorites -- so that each can inspire you anew with gratitude for the birth of the Holy Infant.From Virgil to Rilke, from Dante to Pasternak, Moser has found the world's most brilliant works of Christmas literature -- and he has carefully arranged them so that the collection as a whole sings with transcendent beauty, as does each of the individual pieces.These poems will enrich your Christmas celebrations and restore in you a lively sense of the miracle of the Incarnation throughout the year!
