This arrangement is a peaceful arrangement for solo guitar hopefully in keeping with the original. I would grade it at about AB 4/5 on account of the higher position notes and two half-diminished chords which are a little difficult to access but sound nice. Other than that it is fairly easy.

The original manuscript has been lost, however the music was composed by Gruber in 1818. Gruber’s composition was influenced by the musical tradition of his home. The melody bears resemblance to Austrian folk music.

Gruber published various arrangements of it throughout his lifetime and the Mohr arrangement (ca. 1820) is kept at the Carolino Augusteum Museum in Salzburg.

The carol has been translated into over 300 languages and dialects around the world, and it is one of the most popular carols of all time.

The song was sung simultaneously in English and German by troops during the Christmas truce of 1914, as it was one of the few carols that soldiers on both sides knew.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
