A church organist and a Roman Catholic priest combined to compose one of the world’s most beloved Christmas carols in 1818.
Father Joseph Mohr wrote the original six-verse poem two years earlier while assigned to a Mariapfarr, Austria church not far from his grandfather’s home. Just what inspired the poem is lost to time, but Father Mohr carried it with him when transferred to Oberndorf in 1817.
