Well-known English-language Christmas carols

This is a list of well-known Christmas carols which are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) meaning the words can be copied and sung, to at least one tune, with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing.

"Well-known" is a very subjective:   this list has been compiled by scanning Christmas lists published on the internet by various parishes in the English-speaking world, and choosing the carols which appear across multiple parishes and countries.

Adeste Fideles / O Come all ye Faithful

Angels We Have Heard on High

Away in a Manger

Go Tell it on the Mountain

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

Joy to The World

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O Holy Night

Once in Royal David's City

Silent Night

The First Nowell

The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy

What Child is This

Are there other carols that are so well-known that they should be on this list?   Or ones that you think aren't well-known and don't be long here?    Please leave a message in the Comments section at the bottom of the page.
