It is often sung to Vaughan Williams’s arrangement of an English folk tune, but Walford Davies wrote two tunes to it. He was a prolific composer, a great influence in musical education, and in the music of the Church; he was Master of the Kings Musick from 1934 to 1941. Few of his compositions survive in use, but it would be a pity if his simple, tender interpretation of this Christmas hymn were to be forgotten.
