Child Jesus came to earth this day
William James Robjohn was born in Tavistock, Devon, England in 1843. He adopted the pseudonym Caryl Florio and was well-known in his day as a choral conductor and composer. He died in Morgantown, North Carolina, in 1920. This particular carol pairs the English translation of a text by Hans Christian Andersen with Florio's arrangement of the tune written for it by Niels Gade.
