    The title is quite beautiful, as is the music. It is new to me, and the title does not restrict it to christmas, but the rest of the words might. Austria and Bavaria are also beautiful, and you have chosen well in your background photo.

    Thank you, Richard, and thank you, Ted, for listening and the positive comments!

    This is a very nice music. A "reference" recording would be this version, where the Wiener Saengerknaben sing this song:

    With a bit additional work, transposition, toning down the instruments and adjusting the harmony I was able to mix the Wiener Saengerknaben recording with my instrumental overlay. I have written a short intro, and a short "extro". Interestingly, these are in 3/4, while the actual song is in 4/4. Just felt right to do it that way.

    Instruments are only strings plus two horns.

    This is not authorized by the choir, so I may have to take this down... but feel free to listen to and download this mix, as long as I keep it online here:
