The source singer George Townshend of Lewes also had a version of this. It is on his CD 'Come Hand to Me the Glass (a line from this song) made by Musical Traditions, MT CD 304.
It is on the Copper Family CD 'Coppers at Christmas' under the name of 'Christmas Song'. There are some splendid rare carols on this; it's available from the Coppersongs website.
Hasn't the folk process improved Thomas Brerewood Esq's original?
