Tranquility (HTI 16723) maybe by Marsden

In Bayley & Ferguson`s Old Scottish Psalm Tunes (1905) this Tranquility, HTI 16723 and LM extended, is said to be composed by Joseph Marsden, clerk and director of the choir at St George`s, Everton, Liverpool.

Probably the HTI mention of Marson as the disputed composer of 16723 is a wrong spelling of Marsden.

All the tunes named Tranquility that I have encountered in Scottish collections are this one, but Matthews` definite one could be here too.

    PS The two HTI tunes called Tranquility aren't the Matthews one. Sally
