Christmas Music: O Holy Night (Mariah Carey)

O Holy Night was composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem Minuit, chretiens (Midnight, Christians). In 1855 John Sullivan Dwight, a Unitarian minister, adapted it for English audiences using the French text. It has become a popular Christmas carol sung by numerous artists over the years. Mariah Carey’s rendition is particularly stirring. Enjoy.
