In 1818, a young Austrian priest was trying to devise a way to include music for the Christmas Eve service that night since the church organ was broken. So he wrote a poem and took it to the organist, who composed a melody. That evening the song “Silent Night” was sung to the simple accompaniment of a guitar.

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
