Carols about the annunciation have been around since the early years of Christianity, from the 13th century “Angelus ad Virginem”. 19th century carols dealing with annunciation were printed on chapbooks, and extended to many verses. Versions that start “Come all you true good Christians” have been frequently collected, usually in southern England.
