About “Jul, jul, strålande jul”

"Jul, jul, strålande jul" is a Swedish Christmas song with lyrics written by Edvard Evers and music composed by Gustaf Nordqvist. It was published in 1921.
The song has been subject to many interpretations in Sweden, other Scandinavian countries and internationally by singers, choirs and orchestras.

It was first published by music publisher Abraham Lundquist AB. The song was one of the most common Christmas carols in Sweden during the 20th century. The lyrics describe Christmas as white, then snow-filled, and depict the rest of Christmas blessings with a wish that Christmas brings light and peace. The first known recording of the song dates back to 1924 (in Swedish) with Strandbergs kvartett, as B-side of the single "Hosianna".

"Jul, jul, strålande jul" (English: Christmas, Christmas, glorious Christmas) was composed both for solo voice or voices in unison with accompaniment (organ or piano), and for choir a cappella.

An English interpretation with the title "Wonderful Peace" is made by Norman Luboff.
