Herbert Ernst Groh on Odeon

Herbert Ernst Groh (Tenor) mit Orgelbegleitung und Glocken des Mainzer Doms - "Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht" (Odeon Be 11136 / O-25569a), poss. 1930s

My postings have slowed down  recently, so here's a short christmas greeeting to y'all out there. "Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht," or also famous as "Silent Night" in English, is probably the most popular christmas song all over the world. It ranks also among my top ten favorite christmas songs. This version comes probably from the 1930s, recorded by tenor Herbert Ernst Groh in Germany. Groh was a singer and actor who rose to fame in the late 1920s as a radio singing star. He was successful with recording opera compositions but actually also recorded other material like this cut.
