Love’s pure light
All is calm, all is bright
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Love’s pure light
All is calm, all is bright
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace

[Verse 3] Silent night, holy night!
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

What people are saying:

Trotta’s fresh take on “Silent Night” provides a beautiful, sweeping melody line supported by luscious, strong harmonies. Juxtaposed against a hauntingly gorgeous oboe line, it will leave your audience captivated this holiday season.

Beautiful work, wonderful melodic lines, easily accomplished by a younger choir, but stunning!

Wonderful take on this traditional carol.
