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.
A traditional English carol which is loosely related to Greensleeves which Anonymous also wrote. It’s thought that the words evolved from wandering minstrels in medieval times but there’s also a school of belief that the origins of I Saw Three Ships came from the story of the skulls of the three wise men being taken by sea to Cologne Cathedral in Germany (which happens to be nowhere near the sea).
