Christmas 2016 – holy infant, so tender and mild - Mariapfarr

"Holy infant, so tender and mild." Who doesn't know this line from the popular Christmas carol "Silent Night"? Joseph Mohr, who had originally written the lyrics as a poem, worked as an assistant priest in the Salzburg Lungau area in 1816. Two years later, "Silent Night" was performed for the first time in Oberndorf under the direction of the Arnsdorf-based teacher Franz Xaver Gruber who wrote the music.

On the day of issue, the special post office will be cancelling mail items with the special first-day postmark.

When? 25 November 2016 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where? Joseph Mohr Hall, Joseph Mohr-Platz 1, 5571 Mariapfarr
