Shepherds, in the field abiding

traditional French melody, Les anges dans nos campagnes
author of text
based on Quem vidistis, pastores

Like Blessed be that maid Mary, this was a Wood-Woodward creation: its French folk melody, Les anges dans nos campagnes, was first published in 1842, and its text by Woodward was based on the Christmas antiphon Quem vidistis, pastores.
