The Chapel in Oberndorf

I created this story of “Silent Night” in 2020, an inspiration from a trip that we had taken on the River Danube and visits to various Christmas markets. One trip ashore took me up to Salzburg Austria and eventually to the small village of Oberndorf where to story of Silent Night and the composers of Gruber and Mohr was told. There was even a tiny chapel and an opportunity for us to congregate to listen to a beautiful performance of this Christmas favourite.

I hope you enjoy the story via this link to YouTube

Merry Christmas !

While travelling in Europe visiting Christmas markets in Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic, I had the wonderful occasion of experiencing a tour related to the original writing and performance of Silent Night. It is a wonderful story about a composer and poet that produced one of the most well known and favourite pieces of Christmas music ever produced. Feel free to sing along.

Merry Christmas
