This is a rare little book; do we have any information on who the compilers were?

The Botley Tune book references "Miss Wigram's Collection", many of which (the tunes referenced) appear in this book.

I have the same edition. A hand-written dedication (to a certain "Matilda Pike") is from Nov. 1870 but the book is probably older.

By the way: "Hymns for the Poor of the Flock" (Central tract Depot) from 1841 has a short note just at the beginning of the book: "Shortly will be published, a book of psalm and hymn tunes." Does anybody know anything about this tune book? Was it ever published?

I grew up in the Exclusive Brethren and I remember my Dad whistling a hymn tune we used to sing. He whistled it every time we were on the way to the park on a Saturday! 🌝
Can I WhatsApp someone a recording of my lala-ing it to my friend. I would love to identify it.

Hi Audrey, maybe you could put it on DropBox or Google Drive and share a link to it?
