Notes

Henry Croswell (1840–93) kept a record of his visits to churches in London over a period of more than twelve years (1872–85). He made methodical notes about the number of clergy, the churchmanship, the congregation, the sermon and the church architecture, as well as commenting on the music that he heard (the organ, the hymns and the choir). The above listening experience has been extracted from one of these records. 'The People's Hymnal' was compiled by Richard Frederick Littledale (1833-90) in 1867. Littledale was a prominent Tractarian, translator and writer of hymns, and editor of hymnals.
