Program Notes on Silent Night - A flat Major by Gruber :

The beautiful Christmas carol Silent Night is one of the best-loved carols in the world.

The author of the original lyrics (in German) was Joseph Mohr (1792-1848), a Catholic priest.

The English translation was realized by Bishop John Freeman Young (1820-1885).

The music was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber (1787-1863), an Austrian primary school teacher, church organist and composer of the 19th century.

Mohr and Gruber first performed Silent Night on December 24, 1818, at Christmas Mass in St. Nicholas Church in Austria, with guitar accompaniment, and with the St. Nicholas choir repeating the last two lines of each verse.

This score is an arrangement of Silent Night for voice and piano.

It is set in the key of A flat Major.

The vocal range is Ab3 to Db5 (C4 = middle C).

This score includes the complete lyrics in English (3 verses).

Silent Night

1. Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm, all is bright;
Round yon virgin Mother and Child,
Holy Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

2. Silent night, Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight;
Glories stream for heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

3. Silent night, Holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy Holy Face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.
