Listen to the beginner piano arrangement of Angels From the Realms of Glory.
Angels from the Realms of Glory is a Christmas carol written by Scottish poet James Montgomery. It was first printed in a English newspaper on Christmas Eve 1816. Before 1928, the hymn was sung to a variety of tunes. In the United States, the hymn is most commonly sung to the tune of “Regent Square” by Henry Smart. In the United Kingdom, however, the hymn came to be sung to the same French carol tune used for “Angels We Have Heard on High.” Sometimes the “Gloria in excelsis Deo” refrain is sung in place of Montgomery’s original lyric: “Come and worship Christ the new-born King”.
