A moving rendition of the popular Christmas hymn "Angels We Have Heard on High"

Many people came together to bring this popular Christmas hymn to life and create this video: the Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, David Archuleta, and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir. “Angels We Have Heard on High” commemorates the birth of Christ and the story in the Gospel of Luke where we read that shepherds tending their flocks at night encounter a multitude of angels singing and praising the Lord. The words of the hymn originate with a traditional French carol, and the hymn became popular in England after it was translated in 1862 by a Catholic bishop.
