Bernard Braley was widely respected as a music publisher, as a Methodist who wanted Christians to worship honestly in a way that reflected life in the 20th century, and as a Christian who believed in the power of hymns, above all well-written, contemporary hymns, in all the churches. He was a leading figure in the renaissance of 20th-century British hymnody and was managing director of Galliard, then of Stainer & Bell (following a merger).
