The Hymns and Hymn Writers of The Church
Charles S. Nutter & Wilbur F. Tillett, 1911

(1838-1896). One of the greatest of modern English Church musicians and composers. He served as organist and chorister in several Churches. In 1875 he was made Director of Music in Eaton College. In 1892 he became the Principal of the Guildhall School of Music, and retained this place until his death. He composed about two hundred and fifty hymn tunes, and was musical editor of five hymnals. He published a collection of hymn tunes in 1869, and another in 1883. His style is unique, moderate, subdued, but very sweet. His name is connected with thirty-two hymn tunes and three chants in this book. Some of these tunes are very popular.
