Hello Jonathan,

If you go into HTI and put Tymperley into the composer box, you`ll find your two tunes. They are 9952 and 10088.

And Nicholas has commented that they have no connection to himself (Nicholas created this very useful index).

          Anne: Having ancestors who grew and sold rhubarb and this variety, I can`t resist chipping in again. I think the rhubarb name comes from the Cheshire village which had many market gardens:... more

            Anne Willis, Fri Apr 21 10:41am
            Thanks for the replies on these, and the fascinating web link. Does anyone know of any names of those who sang in the Surrey Chapel choir? I seem to remember reading that the father of the organ... more

              I had always thought from the pictures and descriptions of Surrey Chapel that there was no separate choir and the congregation joined in all the musical items in services... more
