About the Carols

O Come All Ye Faithful
(Adeste Fideles)
This carol is sometimes attributed to John Wade, a British exile living in France. Otherwise it is considered to be an anonymous Latin Hymn. Around 1751, Wade put the text with music, probably by John Reading (English). In 1853 the familiar translation first appeared, attributed to Rev. Frederick Oakley.
