1827-1878
portrait

September 13, 1827, Ely Place, Holborn, London, England.

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.
