On Jordan's Bank
Up! Awake!
King Jesus Hath a Garden
The Blessed Son of God
O Come, O Come Emmanuel

The earliest 15th century carols were based on simple folk melodies, with texts added representing Christmas ideas, but it was a long gap then until the Victorians, followed shortly by great 20th Century composers (Vaughan Williams, Holst etc), developed the wonderful catalogue of choral enjoyment that we enjoy here today.
