It is the evening of the 24th of December 1818. In the church of St. Nikola in Oberndorf, the Christmas Mass just ended. Franz Xaver Gruber and Joseph Mohr - he is holding a guitar - stand up in front of the nativity scene. They sound a lullaby, one that the Oberndorfer have never heard before. Mohr, the Salzburg auxiliary pastor, had already written the six-staged poem in 1816 in Mariapfarr; Gruber, the teacher from Upper Austria, set it to music.

Tyrolean singers, especially the siblings Strasser and Ludwig Ranier's "Rainer Family", launched the song in the first half of the 19th century in Europe, America and Russia.

The better known the song became, the less known the creators were: in 1943 the writer Hertha Pauli, born in Vienna and fled after the Anchluss, informed the American's that "Silent Night" was not an American folk song. 200 years after the premiere, everyone knows who they owe this classic song to.
