It was called " Portuguese Hymn" from its use in the chapel of the Portuguese embassy, London. Vincent Novello, q.v., organist of that chapel, assigned this tune to John Reading, but lately a claim has been made that the tune was written by a Portuguese musician named Marcantoine Simao, who, going to Italy to produce his operas, was there nicknamed "Il Portogallo." He was chapelmaster to the king of Portugal, and went into exile with him to Brazil. In the ninth edition of Brazil and the Brazilians, Boston, on page v. of the preface, it is said that Portogallo composed this tune, but as no dates or references are given the traditional name has been adhered to. Simao had a brother who visited London and wrote considerable church music, and it is possible he composed the tune. Adeste Fideles
