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.
Another of the most loved of Christmas hymns started out as Adeste Fideles – the oldest manuscripts of it have been found in a royal library in Portugal. This is such a popular one that lots of people have been named as the composer – including even Handel, Gluck, Thomas Arne, and King John IV of Portugal.
