Lyrics:
Ding dong merrily on high,
In heav'n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!

E'en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And "Io, io, io!"
By priest and people sungen
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!

Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers,
May you beautifully rhyme
Your eve'time song, ye singers
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!

Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!
Gloria Hosanna in excelsis!

Hosanna in excelsis!!!

Ding dong! merrily on high
In heaven the bells are ringing
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riven with angels singing
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis
E' en so here below below
Let steeple bells be swungen
And io, io, io
By priest and people sungen
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis
Pray you dutifully prime
Your matin chime ye ringers
May you beautifully rime
Your eve time song ye singers
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis

News has come through that Sir Stephen Cleobury - the conductor - has passed on. My very best to his friends and family. Thank you hugely Sir for providing us with the wonderful Music every Christmas Eve, and indeed throughout the year.

This night my dear, 99 year old grandmother passed away peacefully after a long time of lying in her deathbed. In the hour of her death, my wife suddenly woke up in her bed and heard the melody of this song quite clearly. (We are living in Germany, so we are not familiar with "Ding Dong" and we found out on youtube, which one it was but now)
Anyway, I can absolutely comprehend that they popped the corks and celebrated her arrival in heaven.

Christian Günther There's a right Royal party in Heaven when a sinner repents-imagine the joy when a saved soul enters Heaven?!

Sagnick Chakraborty

That's amazing! Thanks for sharing your experience and may your grandma's soul rest in peace

Jane Smith

How wonderful. May she rest in peace.

Ginny Lorenz

GLORIOUS!!! God bless your grandmother, your wife, and you. Thank you sharing that beautiful experience! Love to you from Ginny in San Diego, Ca.

World's best choir, IMHO, and that is one dynamite organist, too! If you ever have the good fortune to find yourself in Cambridge, England, go see the Chapel at King's College, where this choir sings and where this video was recorded. It's quite an impressive example of Perpendicular Gothic architecture, built 1446 to 1515. The painting at the back of the altar is "The Adoration of the Magi" painted by Peter Paul Rubens in 1634. The huge stained glass windows are magnificent and the ratio of glass to stone is amazing -- lots of glass and relatively little stone -- and the fan-vaulted ceiling is also quite something to see 80 feet above the floor on which you're standing when you look up.

@SometimesInnocent What is a better choir, in your expert opinion?

Nancy Hobson

ToddSF 94109 Will do!
