ASCAP says ANGELIQUE O was written by William Attaway and Irving Burgie (some sources say Iain Burgess—a pseudonym, perhaps?). Those are the same guys whose names are attached to DAY O (THE BANANA BOAT SONG) and many other calypso-style songs.
Allmusic.com says it was recorded by Harry Belafonte, The Brothers Four, and Lou Monte.
