Silent Night, wholly known.
Thinking about holiday travels? If so, you should know that the carol “Silent Night” made its debut in Austria 200 years ago this coming Christmas Eve. It was first performed by pastor-turned-lyricist Joseph Mohr and melodist Franz Xavier Gruber in the town of Oberndorf, north of Salzburg. Later, following a performance in Leipzig, Germany, the tune gained a tremendous European following, and in 1873 it arrived in America. To celebrate the anniversary, Austria will hold celebrations around the country. Contact Mariana Tosic at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888‑490‑8008 for details about an Austria visit.
