While Shepherds watched their flocks | Christmas Carols & Songs

Carol, England (U.K.).

“While Shepherds watched their flocks” is a Christmas carol describing the Annunciation to the Shepherds, with words attributed to Irish hymnist, lyricist and England’s Poet Laureate, Nahum Tate.

The exact date of Tate’s composition is not known, but the words appeared in Tate and Nicholas Brady’s 1700 supplement to their New Version of the Psalms of David of 1696. It is the only one of the sixteen works in the 1700 supplement to still be sung today. Nahum Teate was born in Dublin and came from a family of Puritan clergymen.
