Angels We Have Heard

Today we are singing "Angels We Have Heard on High."  This is my favorite Christmas carol to sing.  Not necessarily my favorite to listen to, but it is hand-down the best one to sing.  And that favor probably comes from the fact that I sing alto and this song has a very fun alto descant during the "gloria" part.  It's just beautiful and nice to be out from under the soprano's shadow every now and then.  If I could sing Handel's Hallelujah Chorus more often, I would, for the same reason.  Oh, and more - Handel's Messiah is just stunning.  But I digress.

See what a lovely little question and answer session the sopranos and altos are having?  Fun to sing, and I can imagine being in an angel chorus.  Almost.
