This page is marked for cleanup because this is in fact not an arrangement by Neale, who is responsible only for the text here (Good Christian Men Rejoice) and is not known to have dabbled in music arranging. The arrangement on this page seems to be after that of Thomas Helmore, who arranged all the music in his joint publication with Neale, 'Carols for Christmas-Tide' (1853) where Neale's text for this carol first appeared. The arrangement uploaded here is clearly not exactly as it appeared originally in that publication, with Helmore's mis-transcribed interpolated repeated note for Neale's words "News! news!" and "joy! joy!". As a glance at the Wikipedia article (linked below) makes clear. Suggest move to another page, leaving Neale properly as a librettist/translator only..
