Classical carol for the faithful feels edited as in error (6,7) = ADESTE FIDELES

Revamped edited files as classical carol for the faithful (6,7) = ADESTE FIDELIS sic.
Note the speiling eore in the answer. This was edited on the Torygraph puzzle site to the version above with the correct answer spelling. The crossing clue, and one crossing that, were also edited causing me great confusion when entering the puzzle on line.

Finish the whole affair and drink neat gin? (4,4,4,2) = HAVE DONE WITH IT
