"O Holy Night" is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in response to the French poem, "Minuit, chrétiens", by a poet named Placide Cappeau. The song was first sang in Roquemaure, France, in 1847 by an opera singer Emily Laurey. In both the original French and English versions of the carol, the song reflects on the birth of Jesus Christ and talks about the redemption of humanity.
This fascinating song may have originated in France, but Churches and Christians across the world have embraced this amazing old hymn. In fact, It is one of the most popular songs for choirs to sing at Christmas time.
