Luciano Pavarotti – Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle | Christmas in Vienna – On You Tube

This famous beloved Italian Christmas Carol that is the echo of the majority of Italian Catholic households (and other nationalities as well ) during this season, was written by Saint Alphonsus Liquori , a Redemptorist, who lived at the same time as Saint Gerard Majella, the patron of the unborn , of expectant mothers and other deep thaumatologies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerard_Majella. They were surely influenced by each other.  St Gerard from Muro Lucano, Basilicata an Italian province that was part of the kingdom of Naples https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muro_Lucano – The Kingdom of Naples was also the region Saint Alphonsus hailed from where so much traditional Catholic culture , art, and ‘music’ matured in the decades just prior to the American revolution an era they both proliferated in. This song of the bambino is traditionally heard every Christmas at the National Shrine of Saint Gerard Majellla @ Saint Lucys, (In Newark, NJ) a baroque sacred architecture jewel , that peoples have traveled from other countries just to visit and also experience the generations of miracles that have occurred there.
