On a cold and snowy night, the good King Wenceslas is enjoying the Feast of Saint Stephen. He looks out over his land, illuminated by moonlight, and notices a poor man gathering firewood for his home. He asks a page if he knows who the man is. The page responds that the man lives a long distance from here, at the base of a mountain in the distance. King Wenceslas immediately wishes to share the warmth of his own home and the food of the holiday with him. He orders the servants of his household to bring him food and firewood, that he may bring them into the poor man's home. Thus begins the King's journey of goodwill through the wintery night with one of his servants. Off they go together, carrying a heavy load and trudging through heavy snowfall and cold wind. The page soon tells the King, "Sire, I cannot go any further." The King tells his page to simply follow boldly in his footsteps.

During his time at university in Rostock, Germany in 1582, a Finnish student named Theodoricus Petri compiled a songbook containing 74 Latin church and school songs.

The name of this first publication was Piæ Cantiones.

It has become one of Finland's greatest musical treasures as about half of the songs are believed to be of Finnish origin. The tune to one of these songs, Tempus Adest Floridum (The time is near for flowering), is what we hear today when we listen to Good King Wenceslas. It is said that this melody dates back to the 13th...
It wasn't until 1853 that English hymnwriter John Mason Neale used the story of King Wenceslas from the 10th century, combined with the Tempus Adest Floridum melody first published in the 16th century, to create the Good King Wenceslascarol that we enjoy today. He did this along with his music editor, Thomas Helmore. The carol first appeared in Carols for Christmas-Tide, a collection of 12 Christmas carols adapted from Piæ Cantiones.
