The most famous Christmas carol in the world, for which Father Joseph Mohr wrote the lyrics in 1816. In 1818 he asked his friend Franz Gruber to create the melody.
First printed in the sheet music booklet "Vier echte Tyroler Lieder", although many hand-written copies of the song circulated since the 1820's, including at least one signed by Mohr.
