Silent Night

Silent Night is a popular Christmas carol, originally composed in 1818 in Austria. The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolmaster and organist, and the lyrics are by priest Joseph Mohr. This video shows you how to play it on piano, step-by-step. The left hand plays block chords and the right hand plays the melody, in the key of C major.



And here's a tutorial video teaching you how to play a VERY EASY version of Silent night on piano. This one is easier than the version above. The left hand plays single notes.


The lyrics

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Savior, is born
Christ the Savior, is born.

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
