Englishman John Francis Wade wrote the words and music for "Adeste Fideles;" these were published together in 1782. The original Latin words were translated into English by Frederick Oakley in 1841.
Although crooner Bing Crosby famously recorded "O come..." with English words in the 1940s, the number was originally recorded as an instrumental over forty years previously: a "Brass Quartet from Sousa's Band" made the original recording on 22 July 1897 and this was released on Berliner 826 as a 7-inch disc. This recording, titled "Adeste Fidelis," [SIC] is an instrumental version of the number. The Berliner company was also responsible for the first vocal recording of "Adeste Fidelis," [SIC] made on 29 November 1899 by the Original Lyric Trio with William Hooley, and released on Berliner 0771.
