Christmas Treasures is a medley of three Yuletide gems: Kling Glöckchen (Ring Little Bells) is a traditional German carol, with text by Karl Enslin (1814-1875). Its text and melody recall the ringing of bells in honor of Christ's arrival. Joseph, Dearest Joseph Mine is a fourteenth-century German carol which was popularized in a fifteenth century church drama (also known as a mystery play).

Sung around the Christ child's crib, it contains a sweet lullaby to the newborn King. Sing We All At Christmastide, by Walter Rodby and Joseph Roff, was adapted from an eighteenth-century Moravian tune. Like the more famous carol Joy to the World, this relatively recent addition to the Yuletide repertoire is a call to "praise the newborn King" through exuberant song and "full Hosannas." In this arrangement, melodic material from King Glöckchen is combined with Sing We All At Christmastide to create a joyous finale.
