Christmas Songs Made in America: Favorite Holiday Melodies and the Stories of their Origins
This book, co-authored by Shirley and her husband Albert, celebrates the song writers, musicians and performers who enriched the repertoire of Christmas music. What is distinctive is that all were Americans, thus creating a special brand of music that represents American values of compassion and good cheer. The forty-five songs discussed include such favorites as “Jingle Bells” and “White Christmas” as well as “Here Comes Santa Claus” and “Go Tell It on the Mountain.” Words to the carols are included.
