Not every Christmas song is secular

Here’s a case in point. “Angels We Have Heard on High” is performed here by a cover band called “Foxes and Fossils.” They have three young ladies who sing exquisite harmony, and it’s shown to their advantage with this song.

The song itself is a loose translation of a French song, “Les Anges dans nos campagnes,” with English lyrics by James Chadwick, a Roman Catholic priest and Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle in the 19th century.

Look up the Foxes and Fossils channel on YouTube. You won’t regret it.
