Firstlings of martyrs to whom it was given
The Rev. S. Childs Clarke, M.A. (1821-1903) was sometime Vicar of St. Thomas-by-Launceston and Headmaster of Launceston Grammar School in Cornwall. Arthur H. Brown, who seems to have had a particular interest in things Cornish, originally wrote a tune for this text, but I have been unable to trace it. I have accordingly reset it to the well-known tune "O Quanta Qualia," as harmonized by the Rev. J. B. Dykes.
