This carol was published as “It is the Day, the Holy Day” in A Garland of Christmas Carols, Ancient and Modern (London: John Camden Hotten, 1861). This was apparently well-known in London in the early 20th century and printed on broadsheets. The tune is usually associated with versions of “The Bitter Withy” or “The Holy Well”.
