Silent Night: The Birth of a Carol
Format: Book & CD
By Hal H. Hopson
Travel back to Christmas Eve, 1818 and a small Austrian church nestled in the Alps…where the beloved carol Silent Night was born. Mice have made a shambles of the organ creating quite a problem for Pastor Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber, the church organist. There’s a happy ending, however, in this 17-minute musical which is based on the true story of Silent Night. Six songs and an assortment of delightful characters comprise this easy to prepare and present musical which is created to ensure success for children’s choirs large or small. (17 minutes).
