The Innkeeper's Wife


The 12 Songs of Christmas

Performed by Janina Sebesky
Music and Lyrics by Don Sebesky

Listen to the Music!

The Innkeeper’s Wife, sung by Janina Sebesky, is a gorgeous folk telling of the nativity from the unique perspective of the wife of the innkeeper who let Mary and Joseph spend the night in the stables, for lack of a room at the inn. The music and words were written by Janina’s husband Don Sebesky, the famed Broadway orchestrator, and it is one of twelve holiday treasures, both classic and modern, found on the compilation album The 12 Songs of Christmas, representing all the fine artists in our Holiday genre. The songs on this compilation cover various styles from classical to pop, and the birth of Jesus to ol’ St. Nick. A CD certainly for the whole family!
