Composer Mary L. Stocks

You are here

In Hymns of Consecration and Faith (HCF1902), the tune for hymn #576 on page 404 is by M. L. Stocks, but the link at the left,reads J. L. Stocks, so this tune does not link up with her others.

Is it possible to change her page to Mary L. Stocks? She usually didn't get full identifying credit in the hymnals where her work was published, but we do know her name now.

Thanks for all you do.





Looks like the J. was a pure error on the part of whoever entered the data, since the scan clearly says M.
