Violet Buchanan (Mrs. Andrew Sinclair Buchanan) who resides in London, England, is a new name in American hymnody, but not in British hymn circles. Two of her hymns appear in the new Anglican Hymn Book recently published: "O day of joy and wonder," a hymn for Pentecost, and "Help me dear Lord, to love thee more." Others of her hymns have been published, notably those for Christmas, Easter, and Whitsuntide. She has had requests for hymns on various subjects including recently "Animal Welfare" and "Safety on the roads." Both Mrs. Buchanan and her husband come of distinguished families. Her father, Sir Anderson Critchett was a noted physician, and members of her husband's family help important diplomatic posts. Mrs. Buchanan is active in her parish church and notes that she is a supporter of fellowship between all Christian denominations.
