day 6 of 12: angels proclaiming

"Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King!"
sung by a choir at Kings College, Cambridge
... we have walked about this magnificent chapel
with its fanned, ornate vaulted ceiling
that stretches to the heavens
why this carol?
well i like it
this version is a bit posh-er than what i'm used to singing along to
but its really sweet so enjoy the rendition
love the harmonies ...
& its about angels ... & we all know that the angels 
lit up the night sky in the fields outside Bethlehem
to tell the shepherds of Jesus' birth ...
 here are some i've made 
that hang about at our place each christmas
(i've taken a while to find some 'right' spots for 
decorations this year ... being in a new-to-us home!)
another pattern used ... yep!
but with some wild interpretations as you can see!!

Gorgeous angels and so lovely to find them around the house.
I wish I could post a video here for you - remind me to show you when you come over one day - Miss G in full voice singing the Gloria!! Complete with twirling dancing.
Her dad has been playing it on the piano a lot lately.
