Details about Hark! The Herald Angels Sing |  Associated sheet music


The song Hark! The Herald Angels Sing is a famous Christmas carol.

In Charles Wesley's lyrics, the original opening couplet was Hark! how all the welkin rings, Glory to the King of Kings.

The words sung nowadays are the result of alterations by various authors, among which George Whitfield (1714-1770), who modified the first verse to the familiar one we know today.

Mendelssohn's cantata was first presented at the great festival held at Leipzig to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Gutenberg's invention of the printing press.

Festgesang's second chorus, Vaterland, in deinem Gauen, was adapted in 1855 by William Hayman Cummings.
