Glory to God, the angels said
The title of this carol is found in the index of a manuscript of carols that formerly belonged to Joseph Willcox (b.1823), of Coombe Keynes, Dorset and dating from the 1830s or 1840s. The rest of the text and the tune is taken from Sacred Songs for Little Singers (1883). It is quite probable that some other tune may have been used in Dorset.
