Chants from "Lyra Sacra" Untitled Untitled
William Ludden (1823-1912) was organist of Trinity Church on the Green (Episcopal) in New Haven, Connecticut. He produced his Lyra Sacra: Songs of the Church in 1860. The four Anglican chants on this page are drawn from this collection. Those by Tallis and Weber are probably arrangements from other compositions. The chant by L. C. Bechwith, who was organist of the Church of St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich, and later of Norwich Cathedral, is an exceedingly fine one.
J. C. Beckwith presided over a fine 1707 Renatus Harris organ at St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich. The case was later moved to Great Yarmouth, where it was destroyed by enemy action in 1941
