Learn To Play Angels From The Realms Of Glory

Angels, From The Realms Of Glory l LadyDpiano




I wrote a blog post in 2011, Angels We Have Heard On High. I have the chord charts listed in the following Keys... D, E, F, and G. So many different arrangements to choose. I love the song and it is very popular with my piano students.

One song that you may be familiar with is called:

Angels, From The Realms Of Glory

The author of Angels From the Realms of Glory was an Irishman called James Montgomery. He came from a religious family background and sadly his parents, who were missionaries died following their vocation. Angels From the Realms of Glory was written in 1816.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great desire of nations,
Ye have seen His natal star;

Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear:
Come and worship,

Silent Night is one of the top loved hymns. Also, The First Noel is in the Key of C, D, and E. In addition to these lovely Christmas songs, you'll find Hark The Herald Angels Sing in E.

ChristmasKeys 1 is a great resource to have for your personal library. 300pg Piano By Ear Home Study Course is a great theory book for reference and study guide for chords, progressions, and passing chords.

Many of my piano students are playing the melody line in different keys this year. Using the same fingering, they are connecting with Jingle Bells in the Key of C, F, and G. Another approach for some of my intermediate piano players is the use of chord charts. Here is one to practice with, especially if you know your chords in the progression.
