'An Introduction to Chords' - By David Gilson

I have included at the end of the note in the PDF file, both the conventional version of Silent Night and my arrangement. I also include MP3s of the two versions for reference.

In case you should play the MP3s first, here are some notes regarding how they are played and the points to listen for.

I have played both versions twice, the first time with a single note melody and the second time with chords in the right hand as well as the left hand. This shows how the sound can be filled out by adding chords in the right hand.

I would welcome any questions or feedback from members on points raised in this note and possibly other questions you may have about chords not raised here, which I could respond to separately or include in the next paper.
