'O Christmas Tree', or ' O Tannenbaum', is one of the most famous German traditional songs about Christmas trees. It was written by the organist and teacher Ernst Anschutz, who was based in Leipzig. He used an old folk melody called 'Lauriger Horatius' for his carol. The same melody was also used for other songs including 'Maryland, My Maryland', the official state song of the US state. This recording offers a reading of the English-language lyrics followed by magical harp music based on an original Christmas carol melody.
