Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Latin for O Come O Come Emmanuel
The Hymnal 1982 Companion citing a 1966 article in The Musical Times, states that the melody has been found in a 15th-century manuscript. Also according to the Hymnal 1982 Companion the earliest known appearance of the metrical Latin words (as distinguished from the much older antiphons) remains at 1710.
