200th Anniversary Silent Night Chapel, $250

This hand-painted, relief decorated beer stein was created to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Silent Night Christmas Carol first sung on December 24th, 1818 in a chapel in the alpine village of Oberndorf near Salzburg, Austria. The chapel is dusted by a fresh snowfall and is framed by bouquets of alpine Edelweiss flowers on either side.

On the morning of December 24th in 1818, assistant priest Joseph Mohr asked Franz Xaver Gruber to compose a suitable melody for his “Silent Night” poem.

He wrote the melody that very same day.  It was at the Christmas memorial mass in the year 1818 in the chapel of St. Nicolas where locals first sang the Christmas Carol “Silent Night, Holy Night” (German: “Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht”). Every year on December 24th by 5pm a tranquil mass is held at the chapel, where the Silent Night Carol is sung in many languages. 

Lyrics of the Silent Night Christmas Carol in German:

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht! – Alles schläft; einsam wacht

Nur das traute hoch heilige Paar. – Holder Knab’ im lockigen Haar

Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh – Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht – Hirten erst kundgemacht

Durch der Engel Halleluja – Tönt es laut von fern und nah:

Christ, der Retter ist da – Christ, der Retter ist da

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht – Gottes Sohn, oh, wie lacht

Lieb’ aus deinem göttlichen Mund – Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund

Christ, in deiner Geburt – Christ, in deiner Geburt

Banner on top reads “Silent Night Chapel 200 Years Stille-Nacht-Kapelle”. The base and rim are bordered by edelweiss, Christmas bells & sheet music.  Relief pewter conical lid and cobalt blue background.
