"Silent Night, Holy Night" (German: "Stille Nacht,
heilige Nacht") is a popular Christmas carol. The
original lyrics of the song "Stille Nacht" were written
in Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, by the priest
Father Joseph Mohr and the melody was composed by the
Austrian headmaster Franz Xaver Gruber. In 1859.
I created this version to accentuate the haunting
pastorale elegance of the handchimes used by the Sierra
Vista United Methodist Church (SVUMC) with the radiance
of the full choir.
