'Current' version of 'While Shepherds Watched'


The Christmas carol While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks used to be song to a different tune, according to a professor at Durham University.

The Winchester Old (Nahum Tate) version, sung here by the choir at Hild Bede Chapel, Durham University, is the version familiar to most people.
