Angels We Have Heard on High


Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

 

From the Christmas market in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Oh, it looks funny and sweet at the same time! Yes, I can hear them playing and singing in all languages- ook in het Nederlands:
Ere zij God in de hoge.
Vrede op aarde,
in de mensen een welbehagen.
Amen

As a child I always enjoyed singing this carol because of the challenge to ones' breath.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I can relate to that, Chad. smile Thanks for the smile.
I'll bet they didn't get much of a tune out of that!
Ginnie Hart: You really have to use your imagination for such things, Tom! smile

these sure are pretty.. they probably aren't that big as well.. must be a close up shot.. nice work.. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Rian. They were at eye level and maybe 6 inches high at the most? Yes, quite smallish. smile
What a delightful find Ginnie, a real Astrid type find this one. I have sung this so many times as no doubt have you. The last time was in our lounge when we had a group from Church round for the evening with eats, drinks etc.etc.last Tuesday.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. A great Christmas carol, for sure!

Ginnie Hart: I look forward to all the "gifts" you'll be bringing us in 2012, Mathilde, just like 2011. Much happiness as you go through the holidays! Merci.
Wonderful close-up and catchy song! We saw a performance of Handel's Messiah this week. I never get tired of hearing that last rousing movement. Peace and goodwill to you Ginnie.

Excellent shot, nice framing and dof. Christmas spirit everywhere.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mats. Everywhere, yes!
Such a delightful image - that's my kind of angel! I must say - there's some artistic license being taken here with those brown wings. But they're much nicer than white would have been!
Ginnie Hart: Don't you just love these German gifts to us, dear Linda! Thanks.
Merry Christmas for you and your family!!!!!! awesome photo
