Description:
This is a lovely French carol (ca. 1862) that I like to play in a bouncy fashion. The text is from Like 2:8-20 & Psalm 95:6. It is played with an introduction followed by the three verses:

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heav'nly song?
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the new-born King.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
