Come let us lift our hearts and voice
A north-country carol found in a broadside printed by Walker of Durham in the middle of the nineteenth century. In the absence of a definitive tune I have set the text to one written by William Mather (1756-1808), who was organist of St. Paul's and St. James' churches in Sheffield. A Cornish version of this carol with a tune by J. Coad was published by Ralph Dunstan.
