Those people who earn a living from composing and performing music right now might well take a different view again from those with a more historical perspective, possibly regarding the key points of substantial change in classical music’s development as centring around their particular musical instrument or type of composition. And then there’s another group: those people who haven’t studied classical music and don’t work in the classical music industry, but nonetheless have built up a good working knowledge of the genre.

These developments were mirrored in other areas: literature became more readily accessible, and news and information could be spread far more quickly than ever before. The person we have to thank for the invention of the printing press is a certain Johannes Gutenberg, who used one for the very first time in 1450. Before long, the printing press was being employed for musical purposes – and it had three distinct benefits. Firstly, this new system could ensure complete legibility: musical symbols were standardised, and musicians no longer had to decipher the individual handwriting of a particular composer or copyist.

Composed as a 12th-century chant, it wasn’t translated into English until the 1850s, at which point its popularity spread in this country and beyond. But there are many examples of the Christmas carol tradition before this: barely a century after the death of Jesus, the then Bishop of Rome apparently encouraged priests to sing songs about Christmas. It wasn’t until the 13th century, though, that ordinary people were invited into the world of carolling. Francis of Assisi, who has since been dubbed ‘The Father of Carolling’, didn’t think it right that the only people who sang Christmas carols were priests.
