An Annotated Anthology of Hymns
J. R. Watson
Oxford University Press

The largest section in the book, containing 43 hymns, many of them from successive editions of the pre‐eminent Victorian hymn book, Hymns Ancient and Modern. They reflect the new interest in hymns in the Church of England, which emerged in some of the great hymns and tunes of the age, by writers such as Ellerton, Dix, and How, and composers such as J.B. Dykes and S.S. Wesley. These hymns are for all times and seasons, and include Christmas hymns and harvest hymns. There are also some fine Scottish hymns, by writers such as Horatius Bonar. Women hymn writers begin to be important in this period (Clephane, Havergal, Greenwell, Rossetti).

Keywords:   Christmas hymns, Dix, Ellerton, harvest hymns, How, Hymns Ancient and Modern, Scottish hymns, women hymn writers
