portrait

July 1, 1878, near Geneva, Switzerland.

Monnetier, Savoy, Switzerland.

Winkworth spent most of her life in Man­ches­ter, Eng­land. The notable exception was the year she spent in Dres­den, Ger­ma­ny. Around 1854, she published Lyra Ger­man­i­ca, containing numerous Ger­man hymns translated into English. She went on to publish another series of Ger­man hymns in 1858. In 1863, she came out with The Cho­rale Book for Eng­land, and in 1869, Christ­ian Singers of Ger­ma­ny. More than any other single person, she helped bring the Ger­man chorale tradition to the Eng­lish speaking world.
