silent night

by ada

Today I visited the Stille-Nacht-Kapelle, a memorial on the place of the original church where the Christmas hymn Silent Night, composed by  the village teacher Franz Xaver Gruber, was first sung on the Holy Eve of 1818. It’s located in the small city of Oberndorf, just a half-an-hour train ride from Salzburg.
