As thematic programs go, that's certainly interesting and uncommon.

I am intrigued to see Phocion Henley on the programme. London Gallery Quire regard him as our house composer, as he was rector at a church where we used to rehearse. I have made a complete edition of his 24 hymns at . How did he come to be on this programme? "O God, whose former mercies make" appears on our CD "Praise ye the Lord."

I don't know his music at all; welcome, and thank you for the comments! How did you happen to find this long-ago posting?
