Extra Information In 1855 Cummings adapted part of the "Vaterland, in deinen Gauen" section from the Festgesang zum Gutenbergfest, WoO 9, by Felix Mendelssohn (1840), making changes to the rhythm and harmonisation of the original to fit the lyrics of Charles Wesley's "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" (1754). Wesley intended his words to be sung to the same tune as his hymn "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" and in some hymnals that tune is included for "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" along with the more popular Mendelssohn-Cummings tune (see Wikipedia article).
