Hark! All around the welkin rings
The text of the Cornish version of this carol was first published in A collection of psalms, hymns, &c. &c. intended for the use of Helston Church (1799), and was also published in Penzance in 1870 by Frederick W. Rodda in A Selection of Carols, Pieces and Anthems, suitable for Christmas. The tune is from Richard R. Chope, Carols For Use In Church, which has a text that differs somewhat from the Cornish one and omits the fourth and fifth stanzas.
