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.
Harry Plantinga

Published in 2 hymnals

Composer: William Tucker

Tucker, Rev. William, was admitted priest and gentleman of the Chapel Royal and minor canon and precentor of Westminster Abbey in 1660. He composed some excellent church music, some of which is still extant. An anthem, 'O give thanks,' is printed in Page's 'Harmonia Sacra,' and is also included (with another) in the Tudway Collection (Harl. MS. 7339). A 'Benedicite' is in MS. in the library of the Royal College of Music, and a service and 6 anthems at Ely Cathedral. He appears also to have been copyist at the Chapel Royal. He died Feb. 28, 1678-9, and was buried March 1, in Westminster Abbey cloisters. Dictionary of Music and Musicians (A.D. 1450-1889),, 1895, by Sir George Grove Go to person page >
