about

Epic Orchestral version of the song "O Holy Night"

About the original composition:
"O Holy Night" (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 a wine merchant and poet, Placide Cappeau (1808–1877).

In Roquemaure at the end of the year 1843, the church organ was recently renovated. To celebrate the event, the parish priest asked Cappeau, native from this town, to write a Christmas poem, even though the latter never showed an interest in religion, and Cappeau obliged.[1]

Soon after, Adam wrote the music. The song was premiered in Roquemaure in 1847 by the opera singer Emily Laurey.

lyrics

O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine, o night when Christ was born
O night divine, o night divine

Orjuus on poissa, veljesvaino päättyi
siis Luojan kiitosta laulamme vaan
Toi rauhan meille herra taivahasta
ja puolestamme astui kuolemaan
Siis kansat kaikki, te kiittäkäätte Herraa

Noel, Noel
O night, o night divine
Noel, Noel
O night, o night divine
O night divine,
O night, o night divine
