Vocal score
In stock


First published in Carols for Choirs 1 in 1961, and then reprinted in 100 Carols for Choirs, David Willcocks' much-loved arrangement of O come, all ye faithful (Adeste, fideles) has come to epitomize Christmas, being sung countless times each year around the world. Using the harmonies from The English Hymnal for verses 1-5, it features his unsurpassed descant to verse 6 ('Sing, choirs of angels') and a reharmonized verse 7 which builds to a stirring climax. An accompaniment for orchestra and an opening brass fanfare are available for hire.
