03 December: The Glad Singers: Gloria (Angels We Have Heard)

Published December 03, 2014

"Gloria was originally an old French song about the shepherds who watched their flocks by night. Through the years it has appeared in many forms; here, The Glad Singers treat it with a shuffle beat," the liner notes for the Swing Bells! album by The Glad Singers informs us. To which I can only add: well done, Glad Singers!

Very little is known about this vocal combo beyond the recording of this album, but the complete liner notes for their album are available here.

Thanks to Brady L. Benton for introducing me to the wonders of The Glad Singers.
