"O du fröhliche" was written in Weimar

If you find the popular German carol "O, du fröhliche" being sung particularly frequently in Weimar during the Christmas season, there's a very good reason - for it was written by local social education worker Johannes Daniel Falk and performed in Weimar for the very first time.

If you like to join the choir - we have an english version too:

O thou happy, O thou holy
Glorious peace bringing Christmas time
Angel throngs to meet thee
On Thy birth we greet Thee
Hail to Christ, the Son of God, our newborn king
