Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Short Name: Edward Hodges
Full Name: Hodges, Edward, 1796-1867
Birth Year: 1796
Death Year: 1867

Born: Ju­ly 20, 1796, Bris­tol, Eng­land.
Died: Sep­tem­ber 1, 1867, Clif­ton, Bris­tol, Eng­land.
Buried: Church of St. Mary the Vir­gin, Stan­ton Drew (about eight miles south of Bristol).

Hodges’ mu­sic­al gift showed it­self at an ear­ly age; by 1819, he was play­ing the or­gan at St. James’ Church in Bris­tol, and at St. Nicholas’, 1821-1838. He al­so had an in­ter­est­ing me­chan­ic­al bent, and spurred sev­er­al tech­ni­cal im­prove­ments in or­gan de­sign. He com­posed a num­ber of serv­ic­es and an­them piec­es, and Cam­bridge Un­i­ver­si­ty award­ed him a doc­tor­ate in mu­sic in 1825.

Hodges event­u­al­ly em­i­grat­ed, ac­cept­ing a post at the ca­thed­ral in To­ron­to, Ca­na­da, in 1838. The next year, he be­came mu­sic di­rect­or at Trin­i­ty Par­ish in New York Ci­ty. He be­came the or­gan­ist at Trin­i­ty Church when it opened in 1846 (the church had its or­gan built to his spe­ci­fi­ca­tions). He re­tired for health rea­sons in 1859, and re­turned to his native Eng­land in 1863. Hodges’ works in­clude:

An Apol­o­gy for Church Mu­sic and Mu­sic­al Fes­tiv­als, in Ans­wer…to the Stan­dard and the Re­cord (Lond­on: 1834)
Essays on the Ob­jects of Mu­sic­al Study (Bris­tol, Eng­land: 1838)
An Es­say on the Cul­ti­va­tion of Church Mu­sic (New York: 1841)
Contributions to the Quar­ter­ly Mu­sic­al Mag­a­zine & Mu­sic­al World
