General information

A Collection of Hymn Tunes and Anthems was the third volume of James Leach's music to be published, and the only one of the three to be published posthumously. The volume appears to have been published shortly after Leach's death on 8 February 1798: its title page describes it as 'published for the benefit of his Widow and Children'. The book was published in London by T. Preston of 97, Strand, and 'to be had of the Widow at Manchester'. It contains 31 pieces, most of which are anthems or set-pieces (through-composed settings of metrical texts). Most of the pieces have figured basses, and some have other independent instrumental accompaniment parts.

Publication date and place: 1798 by T. Preston of 97 Strand, London
