Many of our most popular Christmas carols were written by that great composer Anonymous (who also wrote under his nickname, Anon). He also penned such favourite tunes as Greensleeves, God Save the Queen and Scarborough Fair - but it’s his Christmas hits that concern us here.
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was published as early as 1760. It’s thought it was meant for the ears of those cheery chaps who were rather overdoing the eating and drinking during the festive season and to remind them the true meaning of Christmas.
