Christopher Tye, Hark the Glad Sound! The Savior Comes
Edward F. Rimbault set a section of Christopher Tye's The Actes of the Apostles to a different text than Tye's original, extremely banal, one. It has to be said, however, that Rimbault's text, Psalm 145: verses 8 and 3 in Tate & Brady's New Version of the Psalms, was not a lot better than Tye's versification of Acts. I have accordingly set Dr. Doddridge's well-known hymn, "Hark the Glad Sound!" to Dr. Rimbault's arrangement of Dr. Tye's music.
The Rev. Philip Doddridge, D.D. (1702-1751), Nonconformist Divine and Hymn Writer
