Franz Xaver Engelhart (1861 - 1924) was a German Catholic priest, church musician, choir director and, composer. He first attended elementary school in Geiselhoering, and later from 1872 to 1882, the old high school in Regensburg. From 1882 to 1887, he studied at the Lyceum (the later philosophical and theological college) in Regensburg theology.

From 1891 until his death in 1924, he served as Director of Music at the Regensburg Cathedral The Regensburg Cathedral Choir , with whom he formed the first major concert tour to Prague took. From 1903 on, he was also the diocesan Church President General Cecilia Association of the Diocese of Regensburg.

Although he composed 102 sacred works, few are ever heard. In his time, they were believed to be too sentimental. However, many of his songs in the 1930s to the 1950s became folk songs. "Die Marienlieder Hell leuchtet ein Sternlein", "Wenn ich ein Glöcklein wär", and "Maria Rosenkranzkönigin" were sung in that time. His secular compositions were characterized by a fine sense of humor. Especially his steam-rolling song was very popular back then. Among the best known Engelhart compositions are "Wenn ich ein Glöcklein wär" or "Das Ave-Maria-Glöcklein".

Although "2 Weihnachtslieder" (2 Christmas Songs") was originally an accompanied choral work (SATB), I created this arrangement of both the No. 1 "Die Hirten bei der Krippe" (“The shepherds at the manger”) and No. 2 "Sei willkommen" ("You're Welcome”) songs for String Quartet (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
