(93 words)

[German Version]

(Jan 27, 1839, Cornwall – Jan 22, 1913, Topcliffe, Yorkshire) was a British hymnologist, ordained as an Anglican priest (1867), and served parishes in northern England (canon in York, 1901). From his lifelong study of hymns he published Concerning Hymns (1874), various pamphlets, and his monumental Dictionary of Hymnology (1892, revised 1907), which he edited and to which he contributed major articles. Through subsequent editions it remains the standard reference work in English.
