In Cana's town of Galilee
Miss Genevieve Mary Irons (1855-1928) was born in Brompton and was well known as the author of sacred and secular song texts. It is not known whether she was related to Herbert Stephen Irons, the organist of Southwell Minster, the musical editor of Chope's carol collection in which this text appears. The text is by the Rev. Robert Frederick Smith (1833-1905), who was educated at Pembroke College, Oxford and became Vicar of Halam in Nottinghamshire and a Minor Canon and Precentor of Southwell Minster.
