Braley, Bernard: Hymnwriters 2: Hardback
The second volume of the series includes Henry Baker, Albert Bayly, James Montgomery and John Newton.
“Hymn lovers will wish to congratulate Bernard Braley on his successful production of Hymnwriters 2, the second volume of biographical material of distinguished authors of hymns. The dust jacket tells us that this book is first of all just to be enjoyed for the reading of it and without doubt much enjoyment is offered to the reader. The author has amassed a remarkable amount of detail concerning four hymnwriters, and, as in Hymnwriters 1, there is a main narrative section on each page with marginal columns and separate boxes for interesting references and quotations.” (The Hymn Society Bulletin)
This edition is also available in paperback format (B764).
