The Christmas Chanters
This carol was published in Penzance in 1870 by Frederick W. Rodda in A Selection of Carols, Pieces and Anthems, suitable for Christmas. It is also found in Ralph Dunstan, The Cornish Song Book (Lyver Canow Kernewek). This is a unique and most curious carol. Note also the emphasis of Hosanna: HO-san-NA.
