The shepherds amazèd the angel behold
The text of this eighteenth-century English carol is first found in a broadside printed between 1802 and 1819 by H. Wadsworth of 90 Moor Street, Birmingham. It is on William Hone's list of "Christmas Carols now annually Printed" as being one of the more popular carols sung in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The tune was collected in Sheffield, North Yorkshire.
