This is the day the Lord hath made

composer
probably attribution; Ralph Harris, Sacred Harmony i, London, 1784
author of text

 
The attractive fuguing tune ‘Birmingham’, set to the words This is the day the Lord hath made, was published by the Manchester Unitarian minister Ralph Harrison, who ascribed it to ‘Greatrix’ – probably the London organist and composer Thomas Greatorex, or possibly his father Anthony (1730-1814), organist of Burton on Trent.
