~Joy to the World~

The words and lyrics of the old Christmas carol 'Joy to the World' were written in 1719 by Isaac Watts (1674-1748). The father of John Watts was a Non-conformist and so extreme were his views that he was imprisoned twice. His father's influence over Isaac was demonstrated when he choose to attend Non­conformist Academy at Stoke Newington in preference to a University. Watts was ordained as a Pastor of an Independent congregation. He wrote many hymns and Carols and was awarded a Doctor of Divinity degree by the the University of Edinburgh in 1728. The music to the carol is by George Frederick Handel (1685-1759).

I did not know Handel wrote the music to JOY TO THE WORLD. It does sound like it is from an oratorio, but I never would have guessed it. When SILENT NIGHT appeared in the early 19th Century many thought that the music was by Joseph Haydn. It wasn't.
