Misc. Comments

According to hymnary.org, Purday's hymn has been published in no less than 1048 hymnals. It is difficult to tell which was the first publication, since some were published without dates. According to WorldCate, one of them was the Novello Parish Choir Book, which should be this publication, but without a contents list it hasn't been confirmed yet.
