It needs a warm tune and had to wait for a hundred years until the author’s grandson, the leading cathedral musician of his day, published this tune in his The European Psalmist (1872), a collection of over seven hundred hymn tunes. It gets its name because he had been organist of Hereford Cathedral at the beginning of his career, between 1832 and 1835.
