Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

At the Restoration he was rewarded for his devotion to the Crown, and created a Knight of the Bath. Died in London, 1668, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. His poem, Cooper's Hill, is well known.
