Song #17: Hark! The herald angels sing

A traditional favorite. “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing” as featured in the Charlie Brown Christmas special is a staple of the season. Of course it’s roots date long before the cartoon, but the cartoon has served to bring attention to the song and with it the meaning behind it. “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” is a Christmas carol that first appeared in 1739 in the collection Hymns and Sacred Poems.
