Stille Nacht (Silent Night)

Franz Xaver Gruber
Joseph Moor
Easy (Grades 1-3)
2 minutes
Classical music
Instrumental parts
Not available

This arrangement is very simple and easy. I wrote it for my wife, who is not a professional musician and wanted to sing it with a small group of total beginners who are not used to singing a second voice. So this is a good starting point for them to learn it. The Chords are for piano or guitar (rehearsal). They also meet the demands of my wife, who prefers chord symbols instead of a written piano part.

Because of the simplicity of this small arrangement (which took me about 3 minutes for the whole thing), I decided to give it away for free. If you perform it, I'd love to receive a mail from you anyway!!!

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, 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 is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been 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.
