It Came Upon The Midnight Clear

I wanted to include this five stanza poem written in 1849 by Unitarian pastor, Edmund Sears, and later set to music as a Christmas Carol, as one of my festive postings.

It has been recorded many, many times, but I’ve opted for this version by Ella Fitzgerald, even if she does miss out verses three and four!
