O Holy Night arranged for Brass Band by John Iveson
O Holy Night" (also known as "Cantique de Noël") is a well-known Christmas carol. Originally based on a French-language poem by poet Placide Cappeau, written in 1843, with the first line "Minuit, chrétiens! c'est l'heure solennelle" (Midnight, Christians, is the solemn hour) that composer Adolphe Adam set to music in 1847.
The English version is by John Sullivan Dwight. The carol reflects on the birth of Jesus as humanity's redemption.
