Product Description

Learn the true history behind the song, "Silent Night," with this book featuring wonderful paper-cut illustrations. On Christmas Eve 1818 in Oberndorf, Austria, there was no music-the organ had broken. The priest jotted down the words for a Christmas song and asked the organist to write a melody for it. Over the years the song travelled but the origins remained unknown until 1854 when musical authorities were sent to the neighboring village to discover its authors. Included in the back is a history of the song. A welcome addition to every family's library.

Publisher's Description

As amazing as it seems, one of the world’s best-loved Christmas carols may have been written because of ravenous mice! Right before Christmas, 1818, in a church in the small town of Oberndorf, Austria, the mice were so hungry they chewed a hole in the church organ’s leather bellows. To provide his parishioners with music on the holiest of nights, the priest jotted down the words for a Christmas song, and he asked the church organist to write a melody for two solo voices and a guitar. That evening “Stille Nacht,” known as “The Song from Heaven,” was born.

Silent Night: The Song from Heaven presents the story of the carol, accompanied by beautiful and intricate gold scherenschnitte (cut paper art) illustrations. Today, “Silent Night,” the gentle anthem born of necessity, is sung around the world in nearly one hundred languages – thanks to a few hungry mice!
