First Silent Night, The 1x53

The First Silent Night introduces two impoverished children–Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber–who grew up in Austria’s cobbled streets and wooded villages. The hard years that shaped them would eventually lead them to a meeting in a poor country church where they united Gruber’s music and Mohr’s text in what would become the classic carol about the birth of a boy on a quiet night in ancient Palestine. Join renowned actor Simon Callow as he journeys to the Austrian village of Oberndorf and the city of Salzburg, where he uncovers the moving origins of the world’s most beloved carol.
