*These chamber music arrangements of The First Noel were composed by my brother-in-law, a Music Professor at University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He graciously has let me post this music here, and has granted permission for his First Noel arrangements to be photocopied for non-commercial use.

Text & Music- English Carol
  1. The first Noel the angel did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay, In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter's night that was so deep. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel! Born is the King of Israel!
  2. They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far, And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel! Born is the King of Israel!
