The study of the origins of "Sussex Carol" is a fascinating glimpse into the aural history of English folk music. This carol, like other folk music, was passed down from generation to generation, never being written down until the early twentieth century; the result being many different variation on text and melody. The words to the first verse are as follows;
On Christmas night all Christians sing
To hear the news the angels bring"
News of great joy, news of great mirth
News of our merciful King's Birth
