Silent Night: The Story and Its Songby Margaret Hodges, Tim Ladwing (Illustrator), Tim Ladwig (Illustrator)
It was Christmas Eve in the Austrian village of Obendorf. Throughout the village, people were anticipating the Christmas Eve service, especially the glorious Christmas music they loved. But that afternoon, a big problem developed in the little church of St. Nicholas: When Franz Gruber, the part-time organist, pumped the organ pedals, nothing but a wheeze sounded. Here is the story of how Father Mohr and Franz Gruber worked hard until the final hours of the evening to write what has become one of the world�s best-loved Christmas songs and how this simple song quickly spread throughout the world.
