Angels We Have Heard On High
   was written by   
James Chadwick
He translated it in 1862 from a traditional French carol "Les Anges dans nos Campagnes" (The Angels in our Countryside). It is commonly sung to the hymn tune "Gloria" as arranged by Edward Shippen Barnes. In the chorus "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" (Glory to God in the Highest) the sung vowel sound "o" of "Gloria" is fluidly sustained through a lengthy rising and falling melismatic melodic sequence: Glo-O-o-o-o-o-O-o-o-o-o-O-o-o-o-o-ri-a in Ex-cel-sis De-o!
