A piece of world history: Joseph Mohr, the author of "Silent Night, Holy Night"
Joseph Mohr wrote the text to the carol "Silent Night, Holy Night" in 1816; it was originally composed for a guitar accompaniment. His original handwritten text was only discovered in 1995, which brought about a reinterpretation of how the song came into being.
