Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, is not a place you often hear about in the news. However, this year its most famous carol, ‘Silent Night’, has been used to reference the Christmas truce of 1914 and even to help Sainsbury’s shift some groceries!
‘Silent Night’ was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 and has been translated into 140 languages. It was originally written for choir and acoustic guitar as the church organ was not working.
I thought it would be a good piece for us to work on as a group. I’m thrilled that so many of you took up the offer to join in this project.

What a lot of people! That was fun, beautiful and even a teensy bit moving … Happy Christmas and a jazzy new year to Dan and my fellow students – David
Great work, Dan – and everyone who contributed! It certainly was fun, and is beautifully put together. Best wishes for Christmas to all. Nick
Beautiful Christmas video, edited with style and just that final flourish by our Maestro! It was great fun taking part. Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year to all concerned! Bruce
Totally agree with all the comments. It was fun and gave us all a chance to “meet” other students. What a diverse bunch we are. Many thanks Dan. It was a great idea. Merry Christmas to you all. John
