Placido Domingo teams up with the Piano Guys in New York City

Placido Domingo and the Piano Guys join forces to record this amazing rendition of “Silent Night” in the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York City. The popular Christmas hymn was composed in 1818 in Salzburg, Austria.

Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, Mother and Child,

Holy infant, so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar, heavenly hosts sing
Alleluia.
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.
Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love’s pure light,
Radiant beams from
Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.
Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King.
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.
—Lyrics from “Silent Night”
