A Little History:
Northern Illinois University Professor Emeritus (and world renowned
expert on Christmas carols) William Studwell has chosen the
450-year-old song as his Carol of the Year for 2006. He purposefully
refers to it by its original title “The First Nowell,” and is using
the occasion of the honor to set the record straight on the song’s
history.“Whenever the misguided and mistaken form “The First Noel”
appears in the literature of carols, the usual and typical impression
derived is that the carol is of French origin,” says Studwell, who has
been selecting a Carol of the Year for 21 years. “But such an
inference is thoroughly and unequivocally incorrect.”
The word “Nowell” is indeed an Anglicized version of the French word
for Christmas, “Noel,” he says. However, all historical evidence
indicates that the song emerged from the remote Cornwall region of
southwest England in the mid 16th century. Whether the name was
changed by a Francophile publisher or just a lazy typesetter seeking a
shorter word is unclear, but sometime between 1870 and the early 20th
century, the switch was made. Regardless of how or why it happened,
the new title stuck and confusion over the birthplace of this much
beloved carol has reigned ever since....
