Product Description

Storybook Advent Carols Collection Songbook is the companion to the Storybook Advent Carols Collections Volume One: American Christmas Classics and Volume Two: British Christmas Classics.

Education's theme is carried into the carols songbook where you'll learn which song was first written over 1700 years, (talk about withstanding the test of time!). Which popular carol was originally intended for Thanksgiving and which was meant for Lent? You'll learn this too. You'll also discover the real meanings behind the symbols of the Twelve Days of Christmas as well as some of the more unusual Christmas Traditions celebrated throughout the world. You'll learn which song was the original 'Little Drummer Boy' song, how some of your favorite carols are played differently in other parts of the world and you'll be introduced to some of the greatest composers and lyricists of all time.

For the Carols featured on the American Classics album, we treat you to a pictorial tour of East Jerusalem, Via Dolorosa and other Christian Holy Sites. See where Pontius Pilate washed his hands, the pools where Jesus performed his miracles, the spot marking where the crown of thorns was placed on his head as well as Jacob's Well and other cultural sites and slices of modern life in the Christian Quarter of the Old City and beyond not generally seen in the standard tour packages.

For the British Classics, we've included a pictorial tour of Southern England, its countryside and some of the estates. The paperback versions are designed to be used for caroling which is why we created these versions in addition to the digital versions. Each carol features its full lyrics, country of origin and other tidbits of information. When available we've given you the original language version of the carol as well. In the table of contents you'll find the track number if you choose to sing along with the albums. If you purchase one or both albums, you receive a free PDF version of the Caroling Songbook in Classic Black and White which you can download and print on a laser or inkjet printer. Lyrics to the following carols included: Adeste Fideles, Angels From The Realms of Glory, As with Gladness Men of Old, Away in a Manger, Boars Head Carol, Brightest and the Best of the Sons of the Morning (The), Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella, Coventry Carol, Deck the Halls, First Noel (The), Gaudete, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Good Chrisitian Men Rejoice, Good King Wenceslas, Greensleeves, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Holly and the Ivy (The), I Saw Three Ships, In Dulci Jubilo, In the Bleak Midwinter, Infant Holy, Infant Lowly, It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, Jingle Bells, Joy to the World, O Christmas Tree, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Come O Come Emmanuel, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Oh Holy Night, Once in Royal David’s City, Patapan, Silent Night, Snowy Flakes are Falling Softly, Sussex Carol, Twelve Days of Christmas, We Three Kings, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, While Shepherds Their Flocks by Night Watch, Zither Carol.

    Please note: For the iPad Interactive versions, Apple requires you purchase through their store. Email us your reciept and we'll send you the free gifts with purchase that coincide with your iBooks purchases.The links are below.

    For non-Apple purchases, to use the interactive music features in the PDF versions you need to update your Adobe Acrobat to version 7.0 or greater. If you are using an older version of Acrobat, you will not be able to open the files. The music will play on any laptop or desktop computer from within the book if you have Adobe Acrobat 7.0 or greater installed.

    PDF will play music on laptops and desktops but will not play music on a Nook, Kindle or other E-readers at this time. When you load it onto these devices, the music buttons disappear.  We expect that to change in the future as as tablets become more sophisticated and the apps more inline with laptop capabilities.

    If you would like the fully interactive versions of these caroling books for iPad, you can access them on the iBooks store through these links:

Reviews

"WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE DO THIS BEFORE?"

"Storybook Advent Calendar makes me think "Why didn't someone do this before?" It's uplifting, educational, and celebratory for adults and children. I especially like the entry for December 7, which explains the similarities and differences of Christianity, Judaism and Islam in a simple, profound and beautiful way."

-- Tina B. Tessina, Ph.D, psychotherapist and author of 'Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting about the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage (Adams Media 2008)

"I just love the concept and the execution. My grand daughter loved the stories and I can't stop listening to the carols. You deserve every success."

-- Cliff Lague, Spain

"I am awestruck with the book's warmth, its caring and loving sentiment, and totally enamored with the artwork!"

--Jeri Friedman Los Lunas, NM
