General information

William Thorn's Twenty Original Sacred Melodies was published in 1836 (the title page is dated) by George and Manby, of 85, Fleet-Street, London, and by W. Roberts of Exeter. The book was dedicated to Henry PhillpottsLink to the English Wikipedia article, Bishop of Exeter, and was published by subscription. In the previous year, W. Roberts had been listed in the imprint of Richard Partridge's Sacred Music as an Exeter seller of that book, and there is some overlap in subscribers between the two collections.

Publication date and place: 1836 by George and Manby in London.

The psalm tunes in Twenty Original Sacred Melodies are settings of texts from the 'New Version' metrical psalms of Nahum Tate and Nicholas Brady: they are set in four parts, in the order Tenore - Alto - Canto - Basso, with the Canto and Basso parts bracketed together with additional notes between to form a keyboard part: the bass part is also figured.
