John Speller's Web Pages - Christmas Anthems See! The Glorious Angel
Nothing is known about Susan M. Wood except that she was born in 1833 and was still alive in 1907. She published this "anthem" -- really more of a sacred song -- in 1857. It is dedicated to the Right Rev. Alfred Lee, D.D. (1807-1887), who became First Bishop of Delaware in 1841 and Presiding Bishop in 1884, and Mrs. Lee. Bishop Lee was one of the American committee of the Revised Version of the Bible. He died of complications following typhoid fever in 1887.
