High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles "Silent 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, John Freeman Young (second Bishop, Episcopal
Diocese of Florida) published the English translation that is most
frequently sung today. The version of the melody that is generally
sung today differs slightly (particularly in the final strain) from
Gruber's original, which was a sprightly, dance-like tune in 6/8
time, as opposed to the slow, meditative lullaby version generally
sung today. Today, the lyrics and melody are in the public domain.
