Milgrove : Strangers and sojourners below : Printable cover page
notAmos Performing Editions
Composer: Benjamin Milgrove (1731 - 1810)
Milgrove was Precentor of the Countess of Huntingdon''s Chapel in Bath (see illustration). This setting comes from his first (of three) collections of "hymns as they are sung at the Right Honourable the Countess of Huntingdon''s chappel in Bath". The general congregation (sometimes divided into men and women) should sing the Air, accompanying harmonies to be taken by the choir.
If this hymn really is "as it was sung", and is not just an aspirational setting by Milgrove, then it bears testimony to a high level of musical capability within the members of the chapel''s congregation.
