Day 21

I Wonder As I Wander by John Jacob Niles

Niles was known as the Dean of American Balladeers, and we’re lucky to have this contribution to the Christmas literature. It’s clearly sacred by its text, but it’s not a hymn, and thus not sung congregationally in church.

If you’re interested in an audio-only version of this recording, you’ll find this earlier recording on Soundcloud that is sonically superior to this one.
