Thomas Jarman was born in Clipston, Northamptonshire, and was (like his father) a tailor, but joined the choir of the Baptist chapel in Clipston, and became one of the most prolific English composers of psalmody in the early nineteenth century. His first book of psalmody, Sacred Music, Comprising Select Hymns [1803-5], included an anthem 'expressly composed for the opening of Clipstone New Chapel': the chapel was opened in 1803. He is now predominantly known for the tune 'Lyngham', which was published in the same collection under the title 'Navitity'.
