Erhart Hegenwalt

Person Name: Erhard Hegenwald Scripture: Psalm 31 Author of "Erbarm' Dich mein, o Herre Gott!" in Evangelisch-Lutherisches Gesang-Buch Hegenwalt, Erhart. Of this writer very little is known. He appears to have studied and graduated M.A. at Wittenberg. On Jan. 29, 1523, he attended the disputation of Zwingli, by which Zurich was won to the Reformation; and published an account of it in the same year. This narrative is dedicated to his friend and patron J. J. Rusinger, Abbot of Pfaffers (Pfeffers), and dated Zurich, May 3, 1523. Whether he is the same as Erhart Hegenwalt, who was admitted M.D. at Wittenberg, 1526, and was afterwards in practice at Frankfurt-am-Main, c. 1540, is not clear. The only hymn ascribed to him is:— Erbarm dich mein, O Herre Gott. Psalm li. First published on a broadsheet dated "Wittenberg freytag nach Epiphanie im 1524 Jar. Erhart Hogenwalt." Thence in Eyn Enchiridion, Erfurt, 1524, Wackernagel, iii. p. 48, the Unverfälscher Liedersegen, 1851, No. 366, &c, in 5 stanzas. of 8 lines. Translated as: (1) "O God, be mercyfull to me," by Bp. Coverdale, 1539 (Remains, 1846, p. 576). (2) "Shew pity, Lord! O Lord forgive," by J. C. Jacobi, 1722, p. 59 (1732, p. 95), and as No. 120 in pt. i. of the Moravian Hymn Book, 1754. Jacobi borrows a good many lines from Isaac Watts's version of Ps. li. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology

George J. Elvey

1816 - 1893 Scripture: Psalm 31 Composer of "[Defend me, Lord, from shame]" in Bible Songs George Job Elvey (b. Canterbury, England, 1816; d. Windlesham, Surrey, England, 1893) As a young boy, Elvey was a chorister in Canterbury Cathedral. Living and studying with his brother Stephen, he was educated at Oxford and at the Royal Academy of Music. At age nineteen Elvey became organist and master of the boys' choir at St. George Chapel, Windsor, where he remained until his retirement in 1882. He was frequently called upon to provide music for royal ceremonies such as Princess Louise's wedding in 1871 (after which he was knighted). Elvey also composed hymn tunes, anthems, oratorios, and service music. Bert Polman
