"Angels We Have Heard on High" ("Gloria") is a Christmas carol based on an 18th-century French noël, "Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes." The well-known English-language version of the carol with text by James Chadwick (1813-1882) retains the tune of the French noël, though Chadwick’s text is a largely original adaptation, with parts only loosely translated from the French.
The carol commemorates the birth of Jesus as told in the Gospel of St. Luke, and its chorus recalls the "multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest….’" (Luke 2:13-14).
The signature feature of the chorus is a rising and falling melisma on the "o" vowel of "Gloria" - thus, the tune is often ascribed the name "GLORIA."
In this festive arrangement, the tune and refrain are presented multiple times in a variety of keys, harmonizations, and orchestration.
