Program Notes

Originally written in Latin as Adeste Fideles, O Come, All Ye Faithful has become one of the most beloved of all Christmas carols. It has been attributed to several authors, among them King John IV of Portugal, John Reading, John Francis Wade, and anonymous monks. The text, also, has been attributed to numerous authors including King John and St. Bonaventure (13th century). Scholars generally now attribute the music to King John and the words to Cistercian monks though they are unsure whether the monks were German, Spanish, or Portuguese.

The work is an original look at a favorite carol.
