Chapter 6 considers Congregational hymnody at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as reflected in the career, publications, and friendships of William Garrett Horder (1841–1922), a prominent Congregational minister who was widely known beyond denominational boundaries as hymnologist and compiler of hymn-books in an increasingly liberal tradition. Horder is shown to be a representative figure in an influential dissenting denomination, and in this light due consideration is given to his book The Hymn Lover (1889), and his best known compilation, Worship Song (revised edition 1905). Particular attention is paid to his social context, his varied pastorates, and his catholic and transatlantic circle of acquaintances, as well as to his impact, especially as refracted through Worship Song.
