All glory to God, and peace upon earth
This carol was collected by Janet Blunt from William Walton (1836-1919) of Adderbury in October 1916. The tune was known as "Adderbury Church" and both it and the text were written by Thomas Hayward (b. 1781), Landlord of the Coach and Horses Public House on The Green at Adderbury, who directed the church choir. It is said to have been sung both by the Adderbury Waits and in All Saints Church, Adderbury.
