O Holy Night, or Cantique de Noël, is a French carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847. It was written to commemorate the new organ in the town of Roquemaure. The text tells of Jesus's birth, and humanity's redemption. One of the most popular carols, this version is especially arranged for those who aren't ready for the difficulty of the original, but still want the sound of a lovely arpeggio accompaniment.
