Default Christmas Tidbit


Let's try a little Christmas Trivia to see if we can get everyone in the spirit of the holidays......

Who knows what the first instrument on which the Christmas carol "Silent Night" was played?

180 years ago the carol "Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht" was heard for the first time in a village church in Oberndorf, Austria. The congregation at that Midnight Mass in St. Nicholas Church listened as the voices of the assistant pastor, Fr. Joseph Mohr, and the choir director, Franz Xaver Gruber, rang through the church to the accompaniment of Fr. Mohr's guitar. On each of the six verses, the choir repeated the last two lines in four-part harmony.

Well, we have some winners in the first Tidbit: Mermaid and Sailinglisa - and nieciez got it on her second try. Yep, it was the guitar, in 1818 Austria. Guess I'll have to dig deeper for a tougher Tidbit for Monday to challenge this group. Stand by, and have a great weekend!
