Item Description:

Adolphe Adam
O Holy Night
Arranged: William Simon

The world's favorite Christmas solo was actually panned at first! French poet Placide Cappeau wrote the lyrics, which became Cantique de Noël, later presenting them to the esteemed composer Adolphe Adam, who wrote the music in only a few days. French clergy questioned whether either man was of sufficient piety to create such a thing, and one French bishop even decried the work for its "lack of musical taste and total absence of the spirit of religion." By 1855, however, the work had spread to multiple languages, with the best-known English translation by John Sullivan Dwight ("Dwight's Journal of Music"). Today, O Holy Night is all but required on Christmas programs around the world. We are pleased to make available again this solid arrangement by William Simon, using gentle triplets in the piano (or organ) accompaniment and opening in C Major.

Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Piano or Organ
