 Angel's Gloria 
Composer: Ellen Foncannon  Author/Lyricist: Ellen Foncannon 

Voicing: SATB 
Season: Christmas  Released: January 2000  Difficulty: Easy
   Beginning with a strong fanfare, this selection eventually moves into the traditional French carol, ''Angels We have Heard On High.'' But the greatest part is when Ms. Foncannon brings in Beethoven's, ''Ode to Joy'' and weaves them together as if they have always meant to be joined. The Christmas classic nature of the song enables this church anthem to work in many school situations as well.
