From the Forward:
CHRISTMAS CAROLS, A Hungarian Collection, is a book in which the simple beauty of the Christmas story is told through a variety of song styles passed down through the ages and sung by the Hungarian people for hundreds of years. Many of the hymns contained in this collection are still sung in the American-Hungarian churches and by families of Hungarian descent. The songs and hymns presented here are drawn from Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist and Reformed church sources.
Through this publication of Hungarian Christmas carols, generations of young people will learn to love and understand these songs about Christ’s birth. We hope these melodies and words will be treasured and passed on, not only to future generations of Hungarian ancestry, but also to those who have come from other rich and diverse backgrounds.
The present spiral bound edition is designed to be useful in churches for organists and choir members and for family gatherings in order that children and grandchildren have an opportunity to sing in English along with their grandparents.
