"Silent Night, Holy Night - Score" Sheet Music by Bertold Hummel
No other Christmas carol has been as successful throughout the world as 'Silent Night'. It is not only sung in many languages of this world but has also inspired numerous composers to write arrangements. For his choral piece 'Stille Nacht', Bertold Hummel has written three interesting, easy-to-sing variations on the song theme. He has included texts for Advent and Christmas time to be read between the music sections, thus providing a solemn song motet for contemplative hours in Advent. In the first performances of the piece in the 1970s, the role of the narrator was performed by two famous German actors: Elisabeth Flickenschildt and Heinz Rühmann.
