The Story Behind We Wish You A Merry Christmas

According to Wikipedia, The Bristol-based songwriter, conductor and musician Arthur Warrell is cited for the popularity of the carol. Warrell adopted the tune for his own University of Bristol Madrigal Singers and performed it with them in concert on December 6, 1935. That same year, his elaborate four-part arrangement was published by Oxford University Press, under the title "A Merry Christmas: West Country traditional song".
