DOWNLOAD & STREAM "SILENT NIGHT" ON:
„Stille Nacht“ was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf, a village in the Austrian Empire on the Salzach river in present-day Austria. A young clergyman, Father Joseph Mohr, had actually pertained to Oberndorf the year before. He had actually composed the verses of the song „Stille Nacht“ in 1816 at Mariapfarr, the home town of his dad in the Salzburg Lungau region, where Joseph had actually worked as a co-adjutor.
The most popular Christmas Song of all times
The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolmaster and organist in the nearby village of Arnsdorf. Prior To Christmas Eve, Mohr brought words to Gruber as well as asked him to compose a tune and guitar enhancement for the Christmas Eve mass, after river flooding had damaged the church organ. The church was ultimately damaged by duplicated flooding and changed with the Silent-Night-Chapel. It is unknown what influenced Mohr to compose the verses, or what prompted him to produce a new carol.
Christmas Songs Album & Playlist by Copamore
At the end of 2020, the two Austrian music producers Schaller aka Copamore surprise us with their first album, a bilingual Christmas album. Following the release of their Christmas songs “Christmas Wish” 2019 and “Heiligabend in Berlin” 2018, the two music producers from Copamore are wrapping their greatest success of the current year “Stand Together” (Christmas Party Mix) in a chic winter garb. Copamore’s own particularly soulful composition “Christmas Night” can be described as a special gem of the album – a title that has what it takes to become a Christmas classic. As a great challenge, the two brothers dare to reinterpret “Stille Nacht” and “Leise rieselt der Schnee”. “Silent Night” is the soulful opener and just like “Christmas Night” and “Stand Together” interpreted by the Jamaican Soosmooth with his unique timbre. For the two German-language titles – as with “Morning Love” – the young Austro-Scottish singer Fiona Reid is again the singer with a very fresh and yet authentic interpretation of the classics.
