Yesterday, while unpacking my viola for an orchestra rehearsal, I found this piece of sheet music pinned to the wall:

Silent Night

Sounds a lot like a piece by one Mr J Cage.

When I hummed it it sounded very much like that piece by John Cage.....

I wish my neighbors could learn this piece, and play it every night!

Cute. However, my first thought was, Silent Night is in 3/4 not 6/8 :-)

@Annette: as you can see from the autograph, the original "Silent Night", being a so-called "Siciliana", is indeed written in 6/8 rhythm.
