This year marks the 200th anniversary of the first time "Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!" was sung. In this chestnut from GIA's early catalog, Russell Schulz has crafted an arrangement based on Gruber's original version for guitar accompaniment - singers will love imitating the sound of a string instrument! This setting captures the lightness and folk song quality that might have been experienced on that Christmas Eve so many years ago. Adapted from Gruber's original.
