“Hark the herald angels sing. Glory to the new born king.”
No surprise. I heard classic, jazz, rock, and cowboy/country versions of this famous Christmas carol recently. ‘Tis the season. Some tunes have remarkable staying power. Charles Wesley’s testimonial hymn about the birth, life, and ministry of Jesus the Christ has been around since 1739.
