Greetings, all.

A thread is going around concerning "O holy night,"
<https://mikefrost.net/midnight-christians-the-most-radical-christmas-song-ever-written/>which
asserts that the French composer Adolphe Adam was Jewish. I checked
*Grove's* and a few other places but have not been able to verify this. Any
sources pro or con about this would be appreciated.

Grace & peace,

Marci Frederick
