Union Tune Book (1842)

Composer

Originally co-edited by Thomas Clark (1775–1859), this was ‘a selection of tunes and chants, suitable for use in congregations and Sunday Schools’, published in 1837 in London by The Sunday School Union. Clark was a Canterbury shoemaker and choir-leader who left the Methodists to become a Baptist but latterly tended towards Unitarianism; he had a hand in some 5 collections of church music. The book was revised and enlarged in 1842 and 1854; its 1879 edition was edited by John P Hullah (qv) and comprised 687 hymn tunes and 37 chants for psalms and canticles. No.65=542.
