Accompaniment CD for CGA1315 Silent Night (Stille Nacht) by Mark Patterson.
Mark Patterson's simple, straightforward, and beautiful arrangement of Silent Night includes everything a choir needs for success. The vocal line is set in a perfect range for children's voices, and the addition of a descant on the last verse creates a part-singing learning opportunity. Use the German text on the first verse to teach your choir and congregation about the origins of the song.
