The book was published without subscribers but the list of booksellers given on the title page indicates Street's audience: in Barnsley, Chesterfield, Halifax, Leeds, Pontefract, Rotherham, Sheffield and Wakefield, or from the publisher in London, or from the author in Skipton (Almonbury in the first edition, 1730).

A reduction is provided for practice purposes, but should be eschewed in performance.
Lyrics: Luke ch. 2, vv. 10,11,13,14

Behold, I bring you glad tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day a saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men".
Hallelujah.
