Silent Night

Music by Franz Xavier Gruber (PD)

Rick Fitzgerald, autoharp. Franklin, WI. Engineer: Basic Joe Holland, Windmill Productions, Milwaukee, WI

My first autoharp arrived for Christmas in 1976, and the first song to come out of it was Silent Night. The tune has been special to me ever since. While I still have that first autoharp, this version was recorded using a single-key Orthey and tries to capture the joyful spirit of the tune and of that happy memory.
