This is a detailed print of my original "Silent Night" gouache painting. 


The traditional origin of “Silent Night” can be dated back to a chilly winter of 1818 at Oberndorf, a town in Austria. Joseph Mohr, a young and upcoming musician and the protagonist of this narrative, was the priest of the local church. On Christmas eve, the church organ was discovered as broken, with no avenues to fix it until the snow melts away in spring. Joseph, a determined individual, was not disheartened and took steps to ensure that the music prevailed during Christmas. He retrieved a poem from down the memory lane, which he had crafted two years ago. He collaborated with Franz Gruber, the church organist to look for an alternative instrument and relevant melody for the composition. The two men subsequently performed the carol at a Christmas mass beautifully. Gruber played the guitar. And the last two lines of each verse that the choir repeated had a prolonged impact.
