How Much Do You Know about the Origin of “Silent Night”?

 

Christmas Gift BagsClarksville, TN – Perhaps the best-loved Christmas carol of all times is “Silent Night.” Somehow the simple words convey the mystery and simplicity of the real Christmas story better than any other hymn, at least in my humble opinion.

The original carol was entitled, Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht; it was written in German at the request of an Austrian priest, Father Josef Mohr.

According to www.silentnight.web.za, “on December 24th, 1818, Joseph Mohr journeyed to the home of musician-schoolteacher Franz Gruber who lived in nearby Arnsdorf. He showed his friend the poem he had written four years before and asked him to add a melody and guitar accompaniment so that it could be sung at Midnight Mass.”
