General information


William Perry's Original Sacred Melodies was published during the 1820s: while the book is not dated, the Catalogue of Printed Music in the British Musuem dates it to [c1820?], and an advertisement in the Warwick Advertiser on 31 October 1829 stated 'The last number of this work is in the hands of the engraver'. The title page of the work confirms that it was issued in parts, noting 'PRICE OF THE COMPLETE WORK, TWELVE SHILLINGS; SEPARATE NUMBERS, TWO SHILLINGS EACH'. The title page describes the music as 'by W. Perry, arranged for four voices, with a separate accompaniment for the Organ or Piano-Forte by W. G. Perry'.

Complete book Publication date and place: 1829 .

Description of contents

The collection was published by subscription, and includes a list of the subscribers. It contains 49 hymn tunes and eight set-pieces (through-composed settings of metrical texts), although of these eight, three are short enough that they are listed in the Hymn Tune Index as 'tunes'. A fully written-out keyboard accompaniment is given throughout.
