A Carol for Advent
Making Music Memories with Children
Christmas Carols are such a simple, beautiful way to make memories with your children.
As we celebrate the coming of the Christ child, we also yearn for His birth with the singing of carols. These carols are a mixture of anticipation, solemnity, and even sadness.
One of the most beautiful carols is Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus.
This traditional Advent carol (written by Charles Wesley) has two recognized versions. Exploring the history of the carol, the biography of Charles Wesley, and then listening to and learning the carol are worthy things to do with all ages during the Advent season.
