This new setting is an an extended version, with additional melodic and harmonic variations to fit the second verse. Of course, it would be fine to sing the second verse ("Truly He taught us…" etc.) by repeating m. 5 through m. 54, then going to m. 105 as a coda. However, I like having extra vocal gymnastics for singers to interpret the beauty of all the words. ENJOY!! "O Holy Night" (originally titled in French,"Cantique de Noël") is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) by Placide Cappeau (1808–1877). Cappeau, a wine merchant and poet, had been asked by a parish priest to write a Christmas poem. Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight, editor of Dwight’s Journal of Music, created a singing edition based on Cappeau’s French text in 1855. In both the French original and in the two familiar English versions of the carol, the text reflects on the birth of Jesus and of mankind’s redemption. On 24 December 1906, Reginald Fessenden, a Canadian inventor, broadcast the first AM radio program, which started with a phonograph record of Handel’s aria "Ombra mai fu" followed by Fessenden playing "O Holy Night" on the violin and singing the final verse. The carol therefore was the second piece of music to be broadcast on radio. (Source: Wikipedia)
