Christmas 78s, Part 3--Trinity Choir, Zonophone Orch., St. Olaf Choir, Shannon Quartet!

No time for notes--I'd add them later.  Three versions of Martin Luther's great Vom Himmel Hoch hymn, starting with the second selection (Fra himlen hoit kom budskap her), which is a cool instrumental recorded in 1909 in Germany and marketed to several ethnic groups on the Victor label in the U.S.
