Not many of John Francis Wade’s hymn texts or tunes have survived the centuries since he published them, but the one that remains is so well established that many people recognise it even by its original Latin name. ADESTE FIDELES has been published in almost a thousand hymnals in many different languages, but it is Frederic Oakeley’s English translation that is perhaps the most widely known.
In this setting the orchestra swells over the 3 selected verses until it explodes with triumphant joy as it supports your congregation in calling the faithful to adore the Word made flesh.
