Information About 10 Little Angels
"10 Little Angels" is a Christmas song that has been around for a long time, in a number of different variations.
The one you see here could be performed in rounds, with many children singing and dancing to each "number" of little angel. The song originally was part of the great spiritual tradition, and has been changed over the years to make it seem more like part of the contemporary world.
Its cultural references are all about Christmas for young folks – angels are those who go with Santa on his great journey to visit the children. That's what this song really speaks to.
