Barham-Gould, Arthur Cyril

Composer

b 1891, d Tunbridge Wells, Kent 1953. The hyphenated surname came later; hence some listings still under ‘Gould’. He prepared for ordination at Ridley Hall, Cambridge; and was ordained in 1927 to a curacy at All Souls’ Langham Place (with Arthur Buxton, Rector), followed by ministry at St Mary’s Reigate and Holy Trinity, Brompton, W London. From 1936 until his death he was vicar of St Paul’s Onslow Square, London; all these appointments, like his theological college, then had an unmistakable evangelical pedigree. Similarly, his one enduring tune was composed for an evangelical text and appeared first in an evangelical hymn-book, Golden Bells (1926 edn). He also ministered in several overseas chaplaincies during and after World War 2. No.810.
