Beethoven & Christmas Songs
          

This is a extra-rare recording
of a traditional Christmas Song
originally arranged by Beethoven.
A Marian Hymn of Seafarers from
Sicily, 'O Sanctissima' rapidly became
a beloved Christmas Song,
sung in Latin (Italy), in German
(Austria/German Nations),
in English (England). In origin
this song was called
'A song for three holidays':
Christmas, Easter, Pentecost.
