O Christmas Tree by Ernst Anschutz

O Christmas Tree by Ernst Gebhard Anschütz (1780-1861)

“O Tannenbaum”, or, in its English version, “O Christmas Tree”, is a Christmas carol of German origin. A Tannenbaum is a fir tree (German: die Tanne) or Christmas tree (der Weihnachtsbaum). Its evergreen qualities have long inspired musicians to write several “Tannenbaum” songs in German. The best known version was written in 1824 by the Leipzig organist, teacher and composer Ernst Anschütz. The melody is an old folk tune (Lauriger Horatius). The first known “Tannenbaum” song lyrics date back to 1550.
