This is Saint Stephen's Day
Luke Wadding (1628-1692) was Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ferns in County Wexford, Ireland. He directed that this carol should be sung to "Neen Major Neale," an Irish folksong about Ingean, the daughter of a Major Neale. His most famous carol text is "On Christmas night all Christians sing."
