O Come, O Come Emmanuel is a hymn for Advent and Christmas whose words and music developed separately over time. The Latin text was first documented in 1710 and the tune's origins date back to the 15th century. In the 18th century, John Mason Neal discovered the hymn and translated the text into English. The melody was first linked with the hymn in 1851, when Thomas Helmore paired it with Neale's translation of the text. This original version of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel was included in Hymns Ancient and Modern in 1861, which was the official hymnal of the Church of England. The song's influence spread over time and it remains one of the most popular and enduring Christmas hymns. In this arrangement of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, the piano accompaniment is written in 12/8 meter. The vocal lines, however, can be easily taught in 4/4 time. This will allow developing students to experience the feeling of a new meter while being able to apply skills they already know.  .O Come, O Come Emmanuel is a hymn for Advent and Christmas whose words and music developed separately over time.
