The popular tune Eventide by W H Monk (1823–1889) was one of fifteen original tunes written for the first edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern of 1861. Perhaps surprisingly to our twenty-first century ears, Monk criticized sentimentality in Church music, and was a champion of the restoration of plainsong in the Anglican liturgy. He is buried in Highgate Cemetery, where a memorial was erected by public subscription.
