Song background:

Edmund Hamilton Sears was a young Unitarian minister living in Massachusetts when he penned the poem "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" in 1849. It was published that year in the Christian Register magazine in Boston. The following year, Richard Storrs Willis, an editor and critic for the New York Tribune as well as an accomplished musician, wrote the music for the poem. The song has made its way into Christian hymnals all over the world, as well as traditional Christmas albums by numerous singers.
