Finding Gruber and Origin of Silent Night (Link)

Silent Night: The Origin of the Song

Two comments:

  • by some glitch, probably spell check, one suspect having been Michael Haydn, his name was, when I accessed, spelled as "Hadyn", I signalled the glitch and hope they have changed it;
  • one commenter says the story is "apocryphal" : that is the kind of suspicion in historiography I don't like. I am accepting it, until I see a better underpinned one.
