William Chatterton Dix was a manager for an insurance company. While recovering from a severe illness in 1865 he underwent a spiritual renewal that led him to write several hymns.  One of those is the Christmas Carol “What Child Is This” , later set to the tune of “Greensleeves”, a traditional English Folk Song.
