About

"Angels We Have Heard on High" is a Christmas carol with English lyrics by James Chadwick, to the hymn tune "Gloria" from a traditional French song of unknown origin called Les Anges dans nos campagnes. Chadwick's lyrics are derived and inspired and in parts a loose translation, from the French original. The song's subject is the birth of Jesus Christ as narrated in the Gospel of Luke, specifically the scene in which shepherds outside Bethlehem encounter a multitude of angels singing and praising the newborn child.
