With hymn Number 16 from the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal, aka “Silent Night”, we open the hymnal to the section of songs for the Christmas season.

Name: Stille Nacht.
Meter: Irregular.
Music: Franz Xavier Gruber, 1787-1863
Text: Joseph Mohr, 1792-1849
Tr. Unknown

Here’s the pdf of the arrangement for Soprano Clarinet Quartet: 016.ServiceBookAndHymnal

I didn’t add the Bass Clarinet this time, stuck with the Soprano Clarinet on all parts.

I have sung this song, I don’t know how many times, and I don’t think I’ve ever bothered to really learn the actual rhythms accurately. Always sloppy caroling. Interesting to look at it with fresh eyes.
