General information

Cranbrook was first published on pages 20-21 of Thomas Clark's A Sett of Psalm and Hymn Tunes [1805], as a setting of Philip Doddridge's Short Meter text 'Grace, 'tis a charming sound'. It was later adapted for use as a Common Meter tune, with texts such as 'While shepherds watched their flocks by night' and 'On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at', by removing the slurs from the first line.
