The Christmas story, from the Annunciation to the Nativity to the Flight into Egypt, has influenced art for centuries.

The story of the birth of Jesus has also inspired a wealth of beautiful music. This musical compilation celebrates the Yuletide season with such celebrated carols as the exuberant O Come, All Ye Faithful, the beloved Silent Night, and the resounding Hallelujah Chorus from Handels Messiah.
