Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Several websites suggest that you are quite right, Richard. I didn't know that! I rather like the rather sniffy comment on Wiki which states that it is no longer widely recognised as a hymn or carol tune in the United Kingdom.

Ah well! I will just have to go back to singing Whilst Shepherds Watched... to the tune of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
