Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Author: Sir Richard Runciman Terry

Terry, Richard R., was born at Morpeth, Jan. 3, 1868, and was Tate Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. In 1896 he became organist and music-master at Downside R. C. College and Abbey, Bath; and in 1901 organist and director of the choir at Westminster Cathedral (R. C.) London. He contributed to A. E. Tozer's Catholic Hymns, 1898, thirteen tunes and the words of two hymns:— 1. Christ, the Lord, is my true Shepherd. Ps. xxiii. 2. Peaceful eve, so still and holy. Christmas Carol. It is marked as D. C. B., i.e. for Downside Coll., Bath. The tune by Mr. Tozor was published in 1881 to a carol beginning with the same first line, but otherwise entirely different. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)… Go to person page >
