Sinéad O'Connor - Silent Night




"Silent Night" ("Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht") is a popular Christmas carol. The original lyrics of the song Stille Nacht were written in German by the Austrian priest Father Josef Mohr and the melody was composed by the Austrian headmaster Franz Xaver Gruber. In 1863, John Freeman Young translated the song into the English version sung today. The version of the melody that is generally sung today differs slightly (particularly in the final strain) from Gruber's original. Today, the lyrics and melody are in the public domain

Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor ((born 8 December 1966) is a Grammy Award-winning Irish singer-songwriter.
