Silent night (Oiche Chiuin)

The third in a series of videos around christmas. There are reasons why christmas classics have become classics, even though they tend to be overplayed. Perhaps the most played of them all is Gruber's Silent night, dating back to 1818. This is the most beautiful version I know - and it is refreshing to hear deviating lyrics, as Enya decided to record this everwhite in 1989 in a Gaelic version.
Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player)
