If you’re looking for something to relax your mind and encourage your heart during the holidays, check out my book, “Come, Let Us Adore Him.” It features the stores behind our greatest Christmas Carols. Included in this book is the picturesque story of one the greatest of our Christmas hymns — “Silent Night.” It was first performed in a little chapel in Oberndorf, Austria, in the shadow of the snow-clad Alps. The year was 1818.
I’ve found a great website devoted to “Silent Night” and it even features a live webcam from the Oberndorf Church. You can listen to a webcast of services from this tiny Austrian chapel. To check out this great Silent Night Site, check here and select the English link.
