"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.

A legend tells of a stressful Christmas eve in a small town called Oberndorf in Bavaria. The local Catholic church's organ had just died that day in 1818, and the curate, a junior priest, named Father Mohr and the church's musician, Franz Gruber, scrambled to write music for the evening's service.

Father Mohr offered a poem he had written about Christmas Eve, and his talented colleague set the words to music. The result, "Silent Night", captivated the worshippers, and the carol spread through Germany and, in turn, the rest of the world.

Scholars argue, however, that there is no evidence that "Silent Night" was written under pressure. Evidence suggests the organ was not broken. Apparently, people in Bavaria enjoyed folk carols, simple melodies for choirs without organ accompaniment, in that region of the country to celebrate Jesus' birth on Christmas Eve. In addition, church musicians such as Franz Gruber, who wrote the music to "Silent Night," routinely improvised service music and wrote new music to celebrate the Christian life in worship.

I created this arrangement for Violin, Viola & Concert (Pedal) Harp.
