Awake our drowsy souls Untitled
John J. C. Standbridge (1800-1871) was born in Birmingham, England, and came to the USA where he graduated in Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He decided, however, to devote the rest of his life to music, and was prominent in Philadelphia both as an organist and organ builder. Standbridge was active in the Harmonia Sacred Music Society of Philadelphia, from which this tune takes its name, and was also organist of Christ Episcopal Church.
