Knapp was a glover and tutor of psalmody in Poole. His "Set of new Psalm Tunes and Anthems" was popular, achieving 8 editions between 1738 and 1770. Knapp's constituency was country (predominantly organless) parishes. The reduction provided with the current edition is best reserved for rehearsal use only.
Psalm 126 was specified in the Book of Common Prayer as a part of the liturgy for 29th Nay, the anniversary of the Restoration of Charles II. Introduced in 1662 as part of the post-restauration settlement, the liturgies for 30th January (Charles. King and Martyr's Day), 29th May and 5th November (Gunpowder Plot) were included in the BCP until 1859.
