As soon as the first few notes of this song ring out, a Christmas atmosphere is conjured up that is quite beyond compare.
All raise their voices in song, all are overcome by that awe-inspiring sense of peace, for which we long so very much.
In its very simplicity, this song embodies the Christmas spirit like no other. Thanks to its creators, Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber, it will forever remain inseparable from Christmas Eve and the very heart of mankind.
