The origin of this Christmas carol was a poem that was written in 1816 by an Austrian priest called Joseph Mohr. On Christmas Eve in 1818 in the small alpine village called Oberndorf it is reputed that the organ at St. Nicholas Church had broken. Joseph Mohr gave the poem of Silent Night (Stille Nacht) to his friend Franz Xavier Gruber so that the melody and music for it would be finished in time for Midnight Mass. Silent Night is the most famous Christmas carol of all time and its beautiful lyrics convey the essence of peace and love.
Well, here's this famous Christmas carol, with my wish that all Christmas nights all over the world be full of peace and love like in the song:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2015 to you all!
