Not in the usual sense it comes from the choral part of Beethoven"s Ninth Symphony and was revived ( not in the Christmas season) by an Hispanic artist in I believe l97l during the Beethoven Bicentennial. It has a vocal component ( the song was entitled song of Joy- Himno de Alegria- Hymn to Joy. There are a number of lyrical variants including O , Du Holder Abendstern- roughly- one has to insert an adjective to get it to make sense in English- Behold the Magnificent Evening Star! in either version it is not a Christmas composition like, to keep things Germanic- O Tannenbaum.
