Christian Ignatius Latrobe (1758-1836), a minister in the Moravian Church, compiled a six-volume 'Selection of Sacred Music' (London, 1806-26), which introduced to the British public the church music of mainly Catholic European composers such as Graun, Hasse, Pergolesi, Haydn and Mozart. The 'Sacred Songs' to words by Moore himself, and music composed and selected by Moore and Sir John Stevenson, was published in 1816.
