DaveHarries Posted February 22, 2009 Share Posted February 22, 2009 Hi all, I realise that this is a touch out of season as it relates to a Christmas carol. But does anyone know where I can find more information on the Organ Builder called Carl Mauracher, who repaired the organ at Oberndorf, Austria in 1825 and, in the process, helped spread the carol "Silent Night" (written in 1816-1818 by Fr. Joseph Mohr - priest - and Franz Gruber - curate) by taking a copy of it with him? I put his name past the German version of Wikipedia but can find nothing on him. I suppose it is possible that he wasn't well known in organ building but would be interested. I also remember reading that the church of St. Nicholas was demolished in the 1890s. It would be interesting to know what happened to the organ after that, and also some of the hisotry behind the instrument. Any information wil be gladly received with interest. Thanks.
