mp3 free music download: Bing Crosby – Silent Night
Silent Night is a popular Christmas carol, which was composed in 1818 by Austrian organist Franz Xaver Gruber with its lyrics written by Austrian priest Joseph Mohr.
Over the years however, because the original manuscript had been lost, Mohr‘s name was forgotten and albeit Gruber was known to be the composer, many people assumed the melody was composed by a famous composer, and it was variously attributed to Mozart, Beethoven or Haydn.
The song has since been recorded by numerous singers from every music genre, but the 1935 version by American singer Bing Crosby is the third best-selling single of all-time.
