Advent 2009: “A Stranger Star O’er Bethlehem,” Orson F. Whitney, Edwin F. Parry

By: Ardis E. Parshall - November 29, 2009

Orson F. Whitney wrote a second Christmas song with the title of “A Stranger Star …” (different from the A Stranger Star we have seen in an earlier Advent post). This one was set to music by Edwin Francis Parry (1850-1935), who also wrote the music to “Hail to the Brightness of Zion’s Glad Morning” and “Oh, Holy words of Truth and Love.”
