Choir, SAB - Intermediate
Composed by Franz Xaver Gruber. Arranged by Curtis Hanson. Christian, Sacred, Christmas. 9 pages. Published by Curtis Hanson (S0.89403).

Item Number: S0.89403

The awe and mystery of the night of all nights is never more exemplified than in this setting of Silent Night for mixed chorus and organ (or piano) and optional handbells. Beginning at a hushed pianissimo, the dynamics grow to a glorious fortissimo at the close of the third verse. Intended for a chorus with limited male voices, this setting features the men in unison melody on the first and third verses. Three-part women sing the second and provide the counterpoint to the men on the third. After the climax, the work diminishes to the quiet solemnity heard at the beginning. This piece is sure to be the highlight of any holiday program or worship service. An SATB version of the piece is available from Beautiful Star Publishing.
