Hark, hark what news the angels bring!
The Dorset version of this carol was collected in Long Burton by the Rev. Charles Herbert Mayo, M.A., Vicar of Long Burton with Holnest, Dorset at the end of the nineteenth century and was published in the fourth volume of Somerset & Dorset Notes & Queries. This carol is not found in Pickard-Cambridge's collection, though a Cornish version (to a different tune) is found in Gilbert's, Sandys' and Dunstan's collections.
