It comes to us from the French countryside where it emerged anonymously as a "macaronic" carol (that is, with its text a mlange of Latin and vernacular French,) probably in the 1700s, called Les angel dans nos campagnes. Jackson Berkey's arrangement is strikingly individual, with its particular non-strophic handling of the text.See also Angels We Have Heard On High for Handbells (SDG 98-203).
