From the recording Comfort & Joy
Both the words and the music of "Les Anges dans nos campagnes" are thought to have originated in the Lorraine or Provence sections of France. It was first published in 1842, but scholars seem to think it may be older than that. The French version had eight stanzas to the song, but the loosely translated English version by James Chadwick (1813-1882) had only four. Bob - hammered dulcimer; Beverly - harmony hammered dulcimer.
