Here are a collection of recordings to help descants practice for the Christmas season. Please contact us, if you need one that is not currently available. Each recording consists of an introductory verse, followed by the descant verse with the descant played by a trumpet.
Hark! the herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled” Joyful, all ye nations rise Join the triumph of the skies, With the angelic host proclaim: “Christ is born in Bethlehem” Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King!”
Christ, by highest heav’n adored, Christ the everlasting Lord! Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a Virgin’s womb! Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail the incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King!”
Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, Ris’n with healing in His wings; Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die, Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. Hark! The herald angels sing “Glory to the newborn King!”
