Silent Night was written by Pastor Josef Mohr walking home one evening in the Austrian Alps. With the church organ inoperable, the organist composed the melody for guitar. On Christmas Eve of 1818, the song was first sung in Obendorf, near Salzburg. This Larson Gallery staff represents the snow in the skirt, the night sky in the bodice, and sparkling stars circling around with the Christmas star at the top.
