Christmas carols, words & fun facts on emailSanta.com:
In 1816, Josef Mohr, the priest at St. Nicholas Church (great name!) in Oberndorf, Austria wrote a poem called 'Stille Nacht'. Two years later, on Christmas Eve no less, the church organ stopped working. In a panic, Mohr asked the church organist, Franz Gruber, if he could play something on his guitar to go with the poem. They played the new work at that night's service. By some accounts, the song was lost for a number of years until a visiting musician found it. Others say the organ repairman heard the song. Regardless, the song spread by word of mouth throughout Austria and Germany. The children of a glove-maker became famous singing the song at fairs and festivals. The Strasser children even sang for the King of Prussia. It was the King's musical director who uncovered the strange story of how a noisy, broken organ led to 'Silent Night'.
