Abstract

John Frederick Lampe's Hymns on the Great Festivals and Other Occasions (1746) is the first collection of hymn tunes by a single composer associated with the Methodist movement. In it, Lampe sets twenty-four texts, twenty-three by Charles Wesley, the movement's pre-eminent hymn writer, and one by Charles's older brother Samuel. This chapter examines the texts and music of Lampe's collection in relation to Methodist theological and doctrinal principles and practices in order to explain the enduring popularity of many of the hymns in subsequent Methodist publications, specifically those under the editorial guidance of John Wesley.
