Joseph Key's book Five Anthems, Four Collects, Twenty Psalm Tunes, Three Carols, A Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis … Book III was the third of his four books of psalmody to be published, and the first to be published posthumously: Key was buried at Nuneaton on 20 September 1784.

Publication date and place: ca. 1785 for Mrs. Key in London.

The Hymn Tune Index notes that the collection was advertised by Key's widow, Elizabeth, in the 10 December 1785 issue of the Leicester Journal, and that the copy at the British Library, classmark G.521.(3)., is a later reissue [c1807]: the title page of this reissue advertises the three other books of psalmody by Key, including his fourth book Five Anthems and Four Hymns (first published c1790).
